Building support for carbon emissions mitigation: can we use an ocean acidification frame to promote support?

Increasing public support for carbon emissions mitigation is crucial for solving global issues like climate change and ocean acidification (OA). Yet carbon emissions mitigation policies are typically discussed in the context of climate change and hardly ever in the context of OA. In this paper, we present carbon emissions in five different contexts (climate change, […]
