Anthony Watts adds the thought – one wonders how many of these newly found thousands of volcanic sea mounts are producing co2 that bubbles into the ocean (see earlier post on Sea Mounts). EM Smith suggests he might want to take a look at http://chiefio.wordpress.com/2011/12/10/liquid-co2-on-the-ocean-bottom/ … which is all about a liquid co2 lake discovered on the ocean bottom, one of many we might suppose. These are caused by white smokers that release compounds of barium, calcium, and silicon. They also produce biblical amounts of liquid co2. No wonder the oceans are not acidic.
