#1 Coming soon: trade in acid caps... No. Wait. We did that in 1969...

It's great to see your sparkling wit back at work. Sounds like you're recovering well. Best wishes.

#3 I’m not sure about this acidification issue from CO2 but around the Arab states they are slowly poisoning the oceans with salt. I know, sounds silly. They have large desalinization plants to create drinking water. The sludge created from it is the garbage in the water and the salt. They dump it back into the ocean. The salt levels, and PH levels are so out of sort that the oceans around these countries are dying.

#5 This is real hooey. Parts of the ocean are intensely acidic, like North of Sicily, where the water is mostly sulfuric acid; and in other places it is as intensely basic. pH varies wildly by time of year, depth, current, etc.

Easy thing to fudge.

#6 Excess CO2 dissolved in the ocean? Only one solution - add flavoring and sweetener.

#7 the (salt, solids) return contents to the ocean are addressed in each and every extensive environmental permitting document required for permitting of every desal plant - this is utter bullshit and the lying weasels who oppose desal are strict anti-development/anti-human footprint expansion assholes

#8 I'm no scientist, just a dumbass pilot. While in Soddi I met a team trying to figure out how to manage the changes the sludge created in the red sea and persian gulf. The issue was both the Red Sea and the Persian gulf are small in size and the current flow is slow vs the number of desal plants on the coastlines.
