Fouling or bio-fouling is a multimillion dollar problem that grows year after year and affects all sort of vessels, harbours’ infrastructures, desalination facilities, water pipes, cooling pipes for nuclear reactors in power plants and similar. Most of biofouling is the result of several types of marine organisms that stick to metallic surfaces (typical on ships’ hulls) and build-up massive colonies.
But one of the most prolific biofouling builders is a small worm that accumulates calcareous tubes with an incredible speed. We are talking of Hydroides elegans a worm able to built a mass of hard and strong calcareous matt in a few weeks.
H. elegans was found capable of building a solid 4 centimeters (1.6 inches) thick limestone matt in just one month on several hulls at Pearl Harbour.
Hydroides is becoming a serious problem in many coastal areas of the world, not only in its original tropical to sub-tropical waters but also invading more temperate water such as the Mediterranean.
How can this happen in our acidic oceans?

A LIE REPEATED A THOUSAND TIMES BECOMES THE TRUTH
THIS IS THE CASE WITH CO2
YOU MUST SHOW IT A THOUSAND TIMES LIKE A BLACK SMOKE
AND YOU MAKE CO2 A BAD GAS, A POLUTANT, A VENOM, A NOXIOUS WASTE, AN IMPURITY
ALTHOUGH WE ALL KNOW THAT CO2 IS AN INVISIBLE GAS
THE GAS YOU BREATH EVERY SECOND!
CO2 THE GAS OF LIFE!
DON’T LISTEN TO THE #AGWstooges
AND READ MY BOOK
NASA CLAIMS THERE IS WATER IN MARS A FACT THAT COULD MEAN THE POSSIBILITY OF FINDING LIFE.IN THE RED PLANET.
BUT WHAT ABOUT CO2 ????
WHY NASA DOESN’T SAY A WORD ABOUT CO2 ?
IS IT BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT NO LIFE IS POSSIBLE WITHOUT CO2 ?
BUT FOR SO MANY YEARS THERE WERE SAYING THAT CO2 IS A POLUTANT, A VENOM, A TOXIC WASTE.
NASA LEARNT FROM GOBBELS “A LIE repeated 1,000 times becomes a TRUTH”
BUT NASA KNOWS PRETTY WELL THE TRUE LIFE EQUATION:
SUN + WATER + CO2 = LIFE
NO CO2 = NO LIFE

WHAT ABOUT THE OLD PORT OF ROME: OSTIA?
(From Wikipedia) Ostia Antica is a large archeological site, close to the modern suburb of Ostia, that was the location of the harbour city of ancient Rome, which is approximately 30 kilometres (19 miles) to the northeast. “Ostia” (plur. of “ostium”) is a derivation of “os”, the Latin word for “mouth”. At the mouth of the River Tiber, Ostia was Rome’s seaport, but due to silting the site now lies 3 kilometres (2 miles) from the sea. The site is noted for the excellent preservation of its ancient buildings, magnificent frescoes and impressive mosaics.
2 MILES IN ABOUT 2,000 YEARS TODAY OSTIA ANTICA IS 5 METERS OR 16 FT. ABOVE SEA LEVEL (an average RISE of 0.8 ft per century)
