The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

sam waterson, oceanaActor Sam Waterson of Law and Order fame has written a new article for CNN urging action be taking on carbon dioxide levels to combat rapidly growing acidification of the world’s oceans.  A member on the board of Oceana, Waterson has long been a passionate advocate for ocean conservation. Here’s a bit from his piece:

“The current acidification level hasn’t been seen for at least 800,000 years, and acidification is coming on 100 times faster than at any point for hundreds of thousands for years. The levels are alarming. The rate of change makes them even scarier, because it so restricts the ability of sea creatures to adapt.

In contrast to the debate that continues about the causal relationship between this or that weather event and human activity, there is no debate about the source of ocean acidification. The change in the chemistry of the ocean is a man-made event, plain and simple, and the consequences of its continuing rise in acidity will belong squarely to us.

It will make for some uncomfortable moments around the dinner table when our children and grandchildren ask, ‘What did you do in the [climate] war, Daddy?’ If we don’t recognize the ocean’s warning, the first cataclysm from man-made carbon dioxide emissions that will get our attention will be the collapse of the oceans.”
