Science: Ocean Acidifying So Fast It threatens Humanity’s Ability to Feed Itself

The world’s oceans may be turning acidic faster today from human carbon emissions than they did during four major extinctions in the last 300 million years, when natural pulses of carbon sent global temperatures soaring, says a new study in Science. The study is the first of its kind to survey the geologic record for [...]
