Bio Marine scientists: ocean acidification most dangerous affect of global warming
Ocean acidification is described as the ongoing decrease in the pH or salinity of the Earth's oceans caused by the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere

HAWKINS: Global warming is back
After two years of rau-cous meetings at great ho-tels and re-sorts around the world, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) failed to deliver a treaty in Copenhagen in December. The clash of national interests over who would be required to cripple their economies to "save the planet" from the chimera of global warming proved insurmountable.

They say that, unless immediate action is taken on increasing the world's food supply, we could soon be faced with a crisis unlike any other we ever witnessed. The largest amount of work needs to be placed in poorer nations, which have been kept subservient for centuries, but which now need to become able to feed themselves. Most of these areas do not contribute to the global food supply in a noteworthy proportion.
