Activists to Sue EPA over Ocean Acidification

The Center for Biological Diversity has notified the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency of its intent to file a lawsuit to force EPA to act on speculative claims of ocean acidification. Some scientists say such acidification may occur as a result of higher concentrations of atmospheric carbon dioxide.

The group’s notice, delivered November 13, argues EPA should use its regulatory powers under the federal Clean Water Act to force reductions in U.S. carbon dioxide emissions.
