Hey ocean lovers! If you care about our seas and all that swims in them, then you’ve probably heard about this ocean acidification thing—but you’ve probably also got questions about it. We’ve got two of the best ocean scientists around to provide you with answers.
Acidification is caused by carbon pollution in our atmosphere, which is being absorbed by our oceans and interfering with sea life. It’s also bad for our seafood industry and coastal communities. Lisa Suatoni, an ocean scientist at NRDC, partnered with other scientists- including former NRDC scientist Julie Ekstrom, now at UCDavis- to conduct the first analysis of which U.S. coastal communities are most vulnerable to the impacts of ocean acidification. They will be answering your questions on a Reddit AMA on Wednesday, March 4, at 3 p.m. EST. Please join us!
