Here, we review the factors controlling ocean acidification, describe evidence for the occurrence of ocean acidification events in the past, and discuss the potential as well as weaknesses of the geological record in helping us predict future ecosystem changes.

Whatever the cause, this is an important heads-up.
....If people do not wake up, inform themselves and start planning for themselves - we all will be herded like sheep while the Usual Suspects make all the decisions regarding our health and future. Seriously dumb to blow it off, imho.

You know, I don't believe in man made global warming. I think it's climate change, natural cyles that have come and gone. However I do think we are participating in the destruction of our oceans and our ecosystem in general.
Just look at the Great Garbage patches in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, that surely contributes to many of the problems we are seeing in our oceans.
Same with our nuclear waste, general trash and the multitude of other ways that we are destroying the environment on a yearly basis.
It makes no sense to discount this evidence as a factor in the overall changing of our climate and geographical landscape.

Its funny how you can chalk it up to natural cycles and still not be worried ?
Even if this is a natural cycle the ocean becoming more acidic is nothing to laugh about
it can wreck havoc on are already poisoned ocean ecosystem
