It’s an issue that we’ve been writing about here for quite some time: Ocean acidification. It’s one of the big threats that makes the term climate change a more appropriate term for the human impact on the environment than just global warming.
But then, we’re just Irregular Times. That makes us, we know, irregular. So, maybe you need to hear a more authoritative voice on the subject, a voice like the Ocean Acidification Network. That’s an organization that’s working with the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization.
That organization sponsored a scientific symposium in 2008, and from that symposium, 155 scientists from 26 different countries worked together to produce a science-based statement on ocean acidification. Read it. Among its conclusions is that “severe damages are imminent”.
Are you ready to pay attention to this issue yet?
