Oceans Could be 150% More Acidic by 2100

Rising levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) are causing the ocean to acidify at rates not seen for the last 20 million years. Atmospheric carbon dioxide is absorbed by the ocean (at least half of all emissions pass into the seas) increasing the acidity and resulting in “Ocean Acidification”. A […]
