Christopher Joyce http://www.kunc.org en Underwater Meadows Might Serve As Antacid For Acid Seas http://www.kunc.org/post/california-experiments-fix-acidifying-oceans The world's oceans are changing — chemically changing. As people put more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, the oceans absorb more of it, and that's making the water more acidic.<p>The effects are subtle in most places, but scientists say that if this continues, it could be a disaster for marine life.<p>In fact, some scientists have taken a glimpse of what a more acidic ocean might look like.

Large mammal migration in Africa has generally been hindered by the subdivision and fencing of land. However, this one remains possible because it takes place in a unique, multi-country wildlife corridor. <div class="fullattribution">Copyright 2014 NPR.

Wildlife often can't adjust. Among the species that are struggling is one of the American West's most highly prized fish — the <a href="http://www.nrmsc.usgs.gov/research/WCT">cutthroat trout</a>.<p>In springtime, you can find young cutthroats in the tiny streams of Montana's Shields Basin.

It could be the whole planetary carbon treadmill is speeding up. Thu, 22 May 2014 09:05:00 +0000 Christopher Joyce 56827 at http://www.kunc.org
