Ocean acidification? Nothing to worry about unless you're bothered by the fact that acidifying oceans and rising greenhouse gases have accompanied most of the major extinction events that have wiped out most life on Earth at several times in the past.

The Fact that mass extinctions of the past were due to acidifying oceans is alarming. The Fact that every science academy agrees to this is alarming. The Fact that life on Earth is doomed is alarming. The Fact that these are well informed opinions is alarming.
