An acid test for the planet’s seawater

The problem is the accelerating rate of acidification. The cause is the increasing atmospheric level of carbon dioxide. And that, buckaroos, results from human activities like the burning of coal to make electricity, the clearing of tropical forests to make way for agriculture, and the clearing of boreal forests in Alberta, Canada, to mine tart sands. Will political leaders act to at least slow the carbon dioxide craze? I doubt it. They are, after all, too busy counting dollars given to them by polluters.
