EPA needs to get serious about ocean acidification

Ocean acidification is underway, and it’s hurting oysters in Washington, plankton in California and corals around the world. This serious, escalating problem, caused by increasing carbon dioxide emissions and local pollution and runoff, is acknowledged by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency but strangely, the federal agency has chosen to ignore the developing crisis in its […]
