The article said, “Ocean water becomes more acidic when it absorbs carbon dioxide…”

A true statement, but did any testing determine how much of the increased acidification occurred because of “human caused” CO2 generation. Or are we just blaming the humans because it is the novel philosophy of the day.

This article wants to speculate that the cause of increased acidification is upon mankind, but offers no evidence to back up that claim. Phrases such a “…could pose a risk..,” and “…could harm important Alaska commercial and subsistence fisheries…” is not scientific evidence.

Where is the scientific evidence to prove the hypothesis?

There are many many scientific studies to back up the FACT that climate change is real and man made. If you choose to ignore this FACT, then nothing anybody can say will change your mind.

I case you failed to notice, the subject of this article is the Acidification of Seawater – not Climate Change.
