NOAA scientist reports dramatic increase in ocean acidification

A research scientist from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports that the surface layer of the world’s oceans has acidified by 30% in the last 60 years due to increased atmospheric carbon dioxide levels. And he says continued unconstrained CO2 emissions may triple ocean acidity by 2100.
