Ocean acidification at its highest in million years


I had written about this very topic last month. To the New York Times green blog : ” A new scientific paper suggests that the ocean is acidifying at a rate that is many times faster than at any time in the past 300 million years. “

” The change is occurring so rapidly that it raises “the possibility that we are entering an unknown territory of marine ecosystem change,” said the paper, published this week in the journal Science. “

Evidence keeps on piling up : unless we get really serious on slashing our carbon dioxide emissions as soon as possible, we will be doomed, as well as all life on Earth.
