    All that press about oysters not surviving a 0.04 change in PH on the West Coast due to SUVs and CO2? Put it on hold. The science is just now being done.

    What we really have here is not EVIDENCE, but suspicion. And as usual in AGW science a bias towards leaping to conclusions. Couple of facts,

    1) THis entire oyster dust-up is NOT about native marine life -- it's about farming. A bunch of bubbahs with a lot invested in oyster farming who can't seem to make a NON-NATIVE species grow fast enough to make a profit..

    2) Tons of money available for research into OA so these farmers lock into a theory about CO2 causing their problems, alert the press, recruit the useful idiots.. GET THE F'ing MONEY! Have free diagnosis of your business problem..

    3) Encourage researcher to include RIDICULOUS levels of pCO2 tolerances in their studies to guarantee the proper outcome. Sit back and wait for the magic to happen.

    WHOOPS -- the plan doesn't work..

    THE PLAN TO KILL YOUNG OYSTERS with CO2

    THE INCONVIENIENT TRUTH about pCO2

    You would do well to also post this in that other oyster thread, if you haven't already done so.

    I'll take my oysters on the half shell with tequila, and a dash of lemon.

    Unfortunately, in Oregon you aren't allowed to touch the native ones.

    And the others are all privately owned. Probably by liberals living in LA.

    Down south there are oyster farms.
    Salt water oysters are a bit to briney for me.

    you see here in the foothills of the Ozarks you don't have libs or repubs, you have short hairs, and you have well groomed mountain men.

    I put a link to it there -- but the thread creeps me out with all those rats butts pix..
    My wager is the usual posse of doomsayers are out reading the Warmer Gospel in an attempt to respond...

    There was an article in Reason Mag about the collapse of oysters in the Cheasapeake. THey turned to farming there and didn't realize that they needed to put the shells back in the water to build a calcium carb reserve in the local water. It worked for a while but disease took it down. Probably --- as you say --- from mixing native species with farm breeds that didn't really belong there..

    Common sense tells you that if the government funds a "study" the resulting evidence will confirm whatever theory the government commissioned the scientists to find. We saw it with the "global warming " junk science. It's easy for the quasi-scientists to ignore some evidence while faking a few statistics as long as the lucrative grant money keeps flowing. There was a time when factories that used extremely hazardous materials would have been blamed for biological dramas but it seems that the government is now on the side of haz-mat battery companies that make gigantic junk that nobody wants to buy. Chevy Volt batteries are made on the west Coast.
