Acid Oceans Theory Mired in Copyright Issues

SAN FRANSISCO, CA – The main theorist behind the Climate Change-related theory of Acid Oceans, Dr. Peter Leech, is being sued by 20th Century Fox for his alleged copyright infringement of the science fiction movie “Alien Nation”.

The Acid Oceans issue - outlined in a UN report and recently discussed at the Climate Change Conference - describes carbon emissions as not only turning the globe into a veritable pressure-cooker, but also increasing carbonic acid in the world’s oceans, making them unlivable for all manner of lovable, photogenic sea creatures. 20th Century Fox has filed suit against Dr. Leech, charging that the idea comes from their 1988 film involving aliens coming to earth whose body chemistry makes saltwater an extremely corrosive substance.

Dr. Leech, author of both “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Getting Government Grants in Climate Change Research” (2003) and the older “Singin’ in the Acid Rain: A Global Catastrophe Is Coming” (1982), denies the charges but has refused to speak to the press about the issue.  The legal challenges don't involve his UN-sponsored scientific work, but his upcoming book entitled “Acid Oceans: The Next Crisis for Mankind.”
