The rising acidity of the world’s oceans could devastate coastal communities around the United States over the next century, according to a new analysis. And because ocean acidification is exacerbated by other water quality …
Two scientific studies released today highlight the dangers of rising acid levels in the world's oceans. Oceans play a vital role in climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide (CO2) and helping to reduce global warming, but CO2 makes …
The problem is with the water, of course—its pH had dropped too much—but ... with an emphasis on how the global carbon cycle and ocean ecology respond to natural and human-driven climate change. Funding for NOVA Next is …

Portner, is a meta-analysis looking at the specific effects rising acid levels are likely to have on specific categories of ocean life: corals, echinoderms, molluscs, crustaceans and fishes. Every category is projected to respond poorly to …
Oceans' rising acid levels have emerged as one of the biggest threats to coral reefs, acting as the "osteoporosis of the sea" and threatening everything from food security to tourism to livelihoods, the head of a U.S. scientific agency said …

RISING acidity is eating away the shells of tiny snails, known as "sea butterflies", that live in the seas around Antarctica, leaving them vulnerable to predators and disease, scientists say. The study presents rare evidence of living creatures …
Hopes that future efforts to extract excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere could spare the planet the worst impacts of climate change have been dimmed by a new study finding the acidification of oceans could ... the rising acidity
The problem is, we haven’t exactly been making great strides there, and damage that has already been done will continue to affect the rising acidity in the oceans: The sea’s absorption of CO2 is a long, slow process, and the oceans will …
It is possible, however, that oceans could eventually fall into the acid category if emissions keep rising over the next 100 years. From left the right, this graphic shows the direct impacts of putting CO2 into the ocean, and how those impacts …
For those who have not been keeping up with the alarmist follies, alleged ocean acidification has joined ... apparently showing a strong correlation between rising atmospheric CO2 levels and falling oceanic pH levels, Wallace noticed that …
