  1. Leuren Moret says “Limestone is very soluble in an acid environment. Even the acids produced by decay of plant material can cause dissolution in limestone regions.”

  2. The pumping of water for drinking water and the pumping of water for the reactors, construction and anything else speed up the dissolution. So, a large part is from US intake of world overpopulation plus Americans moving to Florida. You can look at the old limestone tombstones and it’s why they changed to granite, too. The phosphate is for fertilizer but also for phosphoric acid in cola. Humans are hard on the environment but it’s no longer pc to admit it.
