Turns out that Antarctica is the canary in the ocean acidification coal mine.
A second major consequence of carbon dioxide emission from human activities – ocean acidification – is also likely to take its toll. “The Southern Ocean is the canary in the coal mine with respect to ocean acidification. This vulnerability is caused by a combination of ocean mixing patterns and low temperature enhancing the solubility of carbon dioxide,” noted co-author Dr. James McClintock of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA.
Monterey Bay Aquarium has measured no change in ocean pH, but why let actual data get in the way of a theory which generates lots of funding?
