Pace of Ocean Acidification Has No Parallel in 300 Million Years, Paper Finds:

Ko Sasaki for The New York Times Corals threatened by acidification near Ishigaki island in Okinawa, Japan. A new scientific paper suggests that the ocean is acidifying at a rate that is many times faster than at any time in the past 300 million years. The change is occurring so rapidly that it raises “the possibility that we are entering an unknown territory of marine ecosystem change,” said the paper, published this week in the journal Science. The new study, led by Bärbel Hönisch , a Columbia University paleoceanographer, does not present much new scientific evidence on the issue. Instead, it is a careful analysis of the existing evidence from decades of research on the earth’s geologic history.
