Here's a Really Clever Plan to Force the Feds to Deal With Climate Change
Reading about ocean acidification is usually a bummer: A hefty portion of the carbon dioxide we're spewing into the atmosphere is getting absorbed into the oceans, where it is killing off sea creatures (including some of the most delicious ones) and ruining coastal economies. Each report on the topic seems more dire than the last. Just a couple weeks ago, a team of experts found, in BBC's phrasing, that "CO2 from burning fossil fuels is changing the chemistry of the seas faster than at any time since a cataclysmic natural event known as the Great Dying 250 million years ago." Awesome.
