“Governance is woefully inadequate, and on the high seas, anarchy rules the waves.

 

“We believe that ocean degradation can be reversed and the current cycle of decline can be transformed into a cycle of recovery.”

Some #Coral Should Produce Shells In #AcidOcean #NewHope in #Pacific

Some #Coral Should Produce Shells In #AcidOcean #NewHope in #Pacific | Now is the Time to Help our Oceans & it's Species ! | Scoop.it
Of four common corals and algae tested, three still produced shells in conditions that mimic oceans if atmospheric CO 2 concentrations reached 1000 ppm. David Biello reports.
Marian Locksley's insight:

Experiments undertaken in Hawaii, Moorea and Okinawa give new hope, at least in the Pacific.
 That doesn't mean ocean acidification won't be bad for corals and algae. But it does mean that across the Pacific some of these organisms can tough it out. Whether other organisms, including us humans, could thrive in a 1000 ppm CO2 world is another question.
