LesserEvil: Um, water IS an acid.

Are we talking more acidic than usual, then?Anything that has a proton to donate is an acid. Even hydrocarbons could be acids in the presence of a strong enough base. Water certainly acts like an acid in the presence of a base.

rockforever: LesserEvil: Um, water IS an acid.Water is an amphoteric substance. It can be either. The more CO2 in the air, the more it will dissolve in water, making the water more acidic. Water, after distilled, is completely neutral.

The more CO2 in the air, the more it will dissolve in water, making the water more acidic. Water, after distilled, is completely neutral.Deionized water (the really good shiat, like 18 megaohm) is acidic, around pH 5 or 6. That's why you shouldn't use it in prolonged contact with metals, it rips the electrons right out of that biatch.

wildcardjack: Fun fact: carbonates form quicker with more carbonic acid in the water. This means quicker growing shellfish. So it's great news if you like crab.Although, quite frankly, I think crab smells like piss. I think the reason it's admonished in the kosher dietary laws is that if you're that hard up for food you're better off fasting.
styckx: "it would take tens of thousands of years for Arctic Ocean chemistry to revert to pre-industrial levels"Meanwhile, scientists still pulling numbers out of their ass.
Chevello: Can't they just aerate it? It seems to work pretty well with getting the pH to rise in my hot tub.
Thisbymaster: I thought they were claiming for years that the ice caps melting would cause desalination not acidification. I think the left hand isn't talking with the right.
Now That's What I Call a Taco!: What the fark are we doing to our planet? Jesus Christ.And some of you think we deserve a chance to go fark up somewhere else. Pathetic.
