  1. The Ocean’s Carbon Balance EARTHOBSERVATORY.NASA.GOV The amount of carbon dioxide that the ocean can take from the atmosphere is controlled by both natural cycles and human activity. Unfortunately not.. This is good article that explains the process.

    The following is the transcript of an ACTUAL radio conversation in October 1995, between a US Navy ship off the coast of England, and some British authority.

Oh for that to happen again.. The weather not the icicles falling on pedestrians..
