Overloaded oceans

Ocean acidification is a real and potentially devastating consequence of climate change that demands immediate attention.

An excess of fossil fuel-derived carbon dioxide is causing profound changes in ocean chemistry. These changes are some of the most pressing problems presented by the burning of fossil fuels, but they get little attention.

A small but growing number of scientists are turning their thoughts to the oceans and their findings demand that we take action.
