I plan to create posts in the future with citations and arguments for every claim, and more.

Feedback is very welcome, positive and negative.

To ensure no miscommunication, my position is:

  • Global warming and ocean acidification are real.
  • Global warming and ocean acidificaiton are primarily human-caused.
  • The risk of extreme consequences from global warming and ocean acidification in the near future are big enough that we ought to be prudent and take extreme measures to mitigate these risks.
  • In order to mitigate global warming and ocean acidification, we must drastically reduce global CO2 emissions. Even then, this may not be enough, and we may need to pursue alternative strategies in addition (out of the scope of this article).
  • Conventional and next-gen nuclear fission power plants are very probably required in large numbers to form the foundation of any plan that will reduce CO2 emissions enough to reach our goals.

This is what you need to know. In the future, I plan to create future blog posts that give citations and arguments for each of these claims.
