The West Coast’s famously abundant fisheries are at risk as the region’s waters become more acidic, a group of scientists have warned. The researchers, with the West Coast Ocean Acidification and Hypoxia Science Panel, this month released a report that projects dire changes to ocean chemistry and marine life, and recommends ways to avert it, including restoring kelp forests and


August 3, 2015--Climate change: Oceans will die even if we remove carbon dioxide from atmosphere, say scientists (Independent)

Attempts to save the world from global warming by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while continuing to burn fossil fuels are unlikely to prevent the oceans from dying as a result of a build-up of acidity, scientists have found.


January 5, 2015--Climate change will cause irreversible impacts if action is not taken: IPCC report (Headlines and Global News)

Climate change is undoubtedly upon us, and it will cause irreversible impacts on both the environment and world economies if action is not immediately taken, warns a new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The effects of climate change have already been felt over recent decades around the world and across oceans.


October 8, 2014--Scientists sound alarm over ocean acidification (ABC)

Ocean acidificationhas risen by a quarter since pre-industrial times as a result of rising carbon emissions, casting a shadow over the seas as a future source of food, scientists warned on Wednesday.


September 10, 2014--Carbon dioxide concentration surges: Record greenhouse gas levels impact atmosphere and oceans, WMO report finds (Science Daily)

The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2013, propelled by a surge in levels of carbon dioxide. This is according to the World Meteorological Organization's annual Greenhouse Gas Bulletin, which injected even greater urgency into the need for concerted international action against accelerating and potentially devastating climate change.


August 26, 2014--Draft of upcoming IPCC report presents stark view of the future as climate change rages on (Huff Post)

Global warming is here, human-caused and probably already dangerous — and it's increasingly likely that the heating trend could be irreversible, a draft of a new international science report says.


March 19, 2014--Scientists warn of global warming's abrupt changes (Los Angeles Times)

A group of scientists warned Tuesday that world leaders must act more swiftly to slow greenhouse gas emissions or risk "abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes" from climate change. The American Assn. for the Advancement of Science's blunt report contains no new scientific conclusions.


November 13, 2013--Emissions of CO2 driving rapid oceans 'acid trip' (BBC News)

The world's oceans are becoming acidic at an "unprecedented rate" and may be souring more rapidly than at any time in the past 300 million years. In their strongest statement yet on this issue, scientists say acidification could increase by 170% by 2100. They say that som
