    I think Undercurrent has shown their lack of local knowledge

    Like pi$$ing in the ocean. If you figure a diver pees a quart of urine into the water on a dive. If that quart contains 5% nitrogen, dilute that by the 10,000 gallons of water that a diver swims through, that's 1.25 mg/L of nitrogen. Consider the current in Cozumel, and that 10,000 gallons of water is swept out to sea in about 1 minute, and the nitrogen that peeing divers contribute is a drop in the preverbal bucket.

    Take articles posted by Undercurrent with a grain of salt.
