Great post! Clear and should be convincing to anyone who reads it. Right now, increasing awareness may be about all the can be done but hopefully some day solutions may be found.

This is a VERY interesting blog. You are a good writer, Nick....one almost gets a sense of being there from your writing.

I hope you are right! More and more I am starting to think it may already be too late...but that doesn't mean to stop trying to mitigate the effects of carbon pollution. Good job, Rhode Island!

This is all too complicated for me! But I am surprised to learn that the Red Snapper is being over fished. That is definitely not a good thing so I hope they can enact some regulations to protect them.

Very interesting article. I knew, of course, about diminishing sea ice but was not aware of the special vulnerability of Arctic waters to C02.. Thank goodness for all the scientists who are studying these matters. I hope we can continue to fund such important research.

Good for you for taking a strong position on this issue of the pipeline! I know OC is dependent on donors so can't afford to offend, but on this issue I agree that advocacy is important. Canada will extract this oil probably, no matter what Obama does, but we don't need to facilitate the process. Anything that can be done to slow down ocean acidification is worth trying.

Great Bog! As a resident of California I am well aware of how important it is to protect marine life, including whales. We have an abundance of krill this year which means the whales have plenty to eat. It has been reported that there are more than usual to be seen off the coast of San Francisco at this time. This means that ships and boats will need to be especially careful!

I hope when the election is over our Congress may be more motivated to work together to implement a a sensible ocean planning policy.
