Scientists Warn ‘Mass Extinction’ in Seas May Be Underway

The ocean may be mitigating some of the effects of global warming, but scientists say marine life is mortally threatened as the ocean becomes increasingly acidic, less oxygenated and warmer. And it’s happening at a much faster pace than previously known.
