Last week, Hari Sreenivasen of PBS NewsHour Connect interviewed me and my fellow Argo blogger Heather Goldstone of Climatide about ocean acidification on the East and West coasts. The Environmental Protection Agency has told coastal states they need to start measuring the effects of airborne carbon dioxide emissions on water quality. The mandate raises a new question of whether the Clean Water Act rules will force the federal government to regulate CO2 emissions, which also contribute to global warming. As you’ll see, the story of ocean acidification is quite different on the East Coast than it is here in the Pacific Northwest, where the negative effects of acidic water on oysters has put a spotlight on the issue.
