Roll me over, it's vinegar on my fish I should be worrying about.
Charles Clover mocks the "born-again climate sceptic, the kind of man (always a man, almost invariably wearing a tweed jacket) " who doesn't know all about Ocean Acidification.
Since the beginning of the industrial revolution in about 1750, sea water acidity has increased by 30%. The speed and degree of this change are faster than anything that had happened for 55m years.
Projections show that by 2060, given the current rate of fossil-fuel emissions, sea water acidity could have increased by 120%.
OK Charles, you are so clever, what do those figures actually mean? What change in pH equals 120%? How acid is the ocean? You didn't just copy out a load of stuff from a leaflet you were given in Copenhagen did you, because you really understand all this chemistry stuff don't you?
