SUPPLEMENTARY NOTES

According to my scientific hypothesis LIVES IN DIFFERENT LEVELS

When consumptions of the biosphere are greater than its recovery, aging (desertification) occurs. Most scientists refer it to the long term imbalance of the local ecosystems. In fact, the ecosystems are interdependent with each other. The aging process scattered around the world but it actually happens all around the globe. Undoubtedly, it is not recoverable. The permanent removal of the living tissues (biomass / biosphere – the life cycle of the Earth) is an ongoing process driven human race to a dead end. Coral reefs are an obvious example of it. They can withstand an environment of 340 ppm CO2. The atmospheric CO2 has already reached 386.80 ppm today. The graph is upward sloping. When it doubles the preindustrial level (approx. 600 ppm), massive death of coral reefs began. They can barely reach 10 meters deep.  There is lack of evidences that the link of photosynthetic organisms (phytoplankton) and the temperature is so tight, but it definitely affects the marine food web. The drift from “diatoms” to “nanophytoplanton” is eroding the base. Meanwhile, the ocean acidification continues. The ocean absorbs more CO2 than the land vegetation. It releases 60-80% oxygen in the atmosphere. On the contrary, organic soils release CO2 (see the experiments in the Biosphere 2). Hence, the increases in CO2 are fatal to all lives on the Earth. The figures just keep on increasing and create a vicious cycle. The increase in CO2 contributes to the death of coral reefs. The coral reefs hypothesis is wrong. The increase in CO2, which is the main ingredient of the coral bones, cannot help them to stay alive from the ocean acidification. The natural mechanism to adjust between the growth of coral reefs and temperature never exists. The increase in CO2 traps heat and contributes to the vicious cycle. Before the life cycle (biosphere) come to an end by the aging process, the rise in temperature contributed by the increase of atmospheric CO2 has changed the climate. It adversely affects the participations. Rivers begin to stop flowing. Billions of people will not have sufficient drinking water. According to the UN report in 1997, about two-thirds of the world population will suffer from medium to high water stress by 2025. At the time being, the world population will reach 8.035 billion (UNFPA). That means around 5.359 billion people will suffer from it. Severe water stress refers to the demand 40% greater than supply. The water desalination consumes high energy and cannot be done with ocean water. Otherwise, it has to be achieved by the way of producing bottled water. It only makes matter worse. Moreover, the ground water is limited and some of these reserves contain salt. The water stress would probably lead us into wars before the Earth die of natural causes (aging / decaying). It is less than 15 years.

Above are my personal observations.
