Beaufort Sea acidifying fastest in the world, new study says

This is the kind of study that Canadian scientists should be doing. I wonder if Canadian *had* been involved in this sort of research before our glorious leader decided that environmental research is a non-no. Anyone?

Lead author Jeremy Mathis of the U.S.-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says nobody knows what the consequences will be for the sea life in those waters.

But he calls the Beaufort Sea a bellweather for the rest of the planet.
