By 2100, oceans may hold enough carbon to launch sixth mass extermination of species, mathematics predicts

By 2100, oceans may hold enough carbon to launch sixth mass extermination of species, mathematics predicts | Geology | Scoop.it
In the past 540 million years, the Earth has endured five mass extinction events, each involving processes that upended the normal cycling of carbon through the atmosphere and oceans. These globally fatal perturbations in carbon each unfolded over thousands to millions of years, and are coincident with the widespread extermination of marine species around the world.

GeoPolicy: Reaching out on Twitter – casually engage with policymakers! | Geology | Scoop.it

Reaching out to policymakers and sharing your research with them can seem like a daunting task! While there are many formal outlets for engaging with policymakers (such as completing questionnaires, contributing to workshops and participating in paring schemes), there are also more casual methods that can be done sporadically and with less effort.
