Congress examines effects of ocean acidification

Tomorrow, a US House subcommittee plans to pass a bill to step up research on the impacts of growing acidity in the world’s oceans, due to increased Carbon Dioxide. Currently there are only a few researchers working on what many believe is a looming environmental problem. While most of that research is taking place in laboratories, one scientist has discovered an area of the ocean where a more acidic future can be found.
