[Coral-List] Remembering Ocean Acidification

Interesting, coincidentally I was at the UN headquarters in NYC today
and there was a display of the entries/winners of a children's art
contest with the theme "Global Climate Change."  I suspect some of the
politics might have been lost on these children given that most their
art featured images of a world on fire (complete with dying sea life)
in juxtaposition to smoke stacks and auto emissions.  Not much I can
say to that except that you won't find me explaining to them the
"political incorrectness" of their artistic visions.

My understanding of the political distinction is that only 'global warming'
implies that rising CO2 is the "root evil."  The causes of 'global climate
change' are more open to interpretation, especially with regard to how
humans may have contributed.
