What Goes Down Must Come Up

And you thought the National Geographic was all pretty pictures and naked tribespeople (non-sexist remark) in Africa.

It's also known for science news. Like this little tidbit.

I know, you've been sitting at home wondering what happened to all of the carbon dioxide that we've been releasing into the air since the industrial revolution started several hundred years ago. Obviously, you've thought, it can't all have ended up in the atmosphere.

And you'd be right. Half of it has ended up in the ocean, along with other chemicals. Of course. After all, the oceans take up two-thirds of earth. Where else would it end up? Certainly not in Saturn's rings - they found oxygen there. Certainly not.

What does all of this research portend? Plankton will die, and corals will die. So what, you say?

They're at the bottom of the food chain. Contrary to the laws of laws of physics, what goes down, must come up.

Solutions? I don't have any.
