Well, so much for fish!

90% are at risk by 2025 Dumbassmitter. Stop using last week as your baseline of "normal."

Seems the Holocene mass extinction is on track. Wonder what will arise in its aftermath, too bad nobody will be around to see it.

So you believe the Earth is flat, right?

No, but I'm suspicious about your head.

I'd like to see their data in puts
I know  the Co2 is rising  higher than it has  been since humans have been around but we've been on a very low side for the planet's  history overall. I believe there will be feedback loops that are going to be unexpected that while not great won't be what's being predicted.

If it gets bad enough to affect the oceans that horrifically, human civilization will be a memory and billions will die, probably all of the billions. I will say again: large animals don't usually do well in mass die offs. Humans are large animals. Yeah, we're "smart", but we are not immune to environmental pressure. If we get to the point of causing a severe die off, we will almost certainly also go.

Any climate change severe enough to cause a mass extinction - and 90% of marine life is end-Permian level - is certain to cause crop failures and mass death of humans, leading to worldwide strife and migration on a scale the world has never seen.

This is all preventable but we have to stop using fossil fuels as quickly as possible. That's hard, but we have technology to make that a lot easier now. Solar panels, electric cars, we can even run smelters on electricity easily if we have enough (see Iceland). It can be done.

Whether we do it or not...

Honestly, what would you do with them if you did? Personally reanalyze thousands of data files?

I know  the Co2 is rising  higher than it has  been since humans have been around but we've been on a very low side for the planet's  history overall.

That's not really relevant to marine health, because the climate is largely changing faster than species can evolve to compensate.

I believe there will be feedback loops that are going to be unexpected that while not great won't be what's being predicted.


It's no great stretch to claim that something unexpected will happen, since we don't know everything.  But you're implying that it won't be as bad as predicted?  Feedback loops work both ways, and things could also be worse than predicted.

Tech will help. Wait until you see our coping solutions. We will survive...and promptly turn the planet into Venus. 90% is for novices!

Since I'm allergic to shellfish and fish, I can help. Just let me naturally impregnate all the women of child birthing age and hopefully all the kids will also come out with same allergies.

And the 10% that will survive includes all the jellyfish and the most toxic kinds of red algal bloom.

At least the Japanese will still be happy.  Lotta those jellyfish are edible.  Technically.

Probably much earlier than 2100. By most metrics heating and consequent change has been beating expectations. So we have that going for us.

Already happening. Alaskan King Crab literally disappeared last year - scientists think it was a large-scale mortality event. If you haven't tried to buy it recently, check out the prices on it, it's around $69.99 a lb.

They shut down fishing it in 2021.

I know a bit ait about ocean acidification and all kinds of nasty stuff that can happen . Here's a fun guy to tell you what did happen.

2100?  Bah we'll eat the last fish by 2050, book it.

Well I'm waiting for what a wall street economist has to say before I worry. We can just eat the poor. That will probably help long term. I'd prefer some wall street economist.
