Following on the heels of overfishing, sediment depositions, nitrate pollution in some areas, coral bleaching caused by global warming, and increasing ocean acidity caused by carbon emissions, the lionfish invasion is a serious concern, said Mark Hixon, an OSU professor of zoology and expert on coral reef ecology.

It will be a sad day when we poison the oceans.

Since the global temperatures are increasingly reluctant to obey to the CO2 alarmism, it can be expected that the emphasis will be shifting to other effects of the anthropogenic CO2 injections, the oceans for instance but the coral bleaching is rather ambigeous, for instance: too much fishing.

But there is also the acidification issue but:

Nothing in the sea works as expected: its physics, chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, biology and ecology do not work as thought; truth is often opposite to intuition. The sea is weirder than we can possibly imagine. To learn about the sea, forget what you were taught at school, and open your mind.

This is impossible. Nothing bad happens in nature, unless man is directly responsible. It's like when Haliburton killed the dinosaurs for petrolium then covered it up with an asteroid. Or all the times the logging industry has removed the trees (and surrounding underbrush) from california and covered it up with the stories of wildfires. Someday we will find the true cause of this and it will be the evils of mankind.

And so is the founding axiom of much of today's environmentalism.
