Eminent independent scientists IPSO say than man-made ocean stress factors are far graver than previous estimates

We provide here the introductory text, with link to the main report, of the International Programme on the State of the Ocean, 2013, which states that man-made physical changes to the planet’s oceans — de-oxygenation, acidification, warming — (which the authors refer to as the “deadly trio”) are combining together, in conjunction with over-fishing, to create a situation where a mass extinction of marine life and ecological structure is looking ever-more “inevitable” unless profound changes in mankind’s activities occur urgently. The report explains what these changes in mankind’s behaviour and governance must be.
