This is a re-post of press release from the Center for Biological Diversity, who have trying to cut through bureaucratic red tape and inertia to get the serious problems at Puget Sound acknowledged by the US Govt.

From reading the scientific literature, the area is in deep doo-doos. The water being upwelled there was last at the surface about 40 years ago. There's another 40 years of acidified seawater yet to upwell. And it will only intensify.

No worries bro. Keep reminding readers of the OA threat whilst I'm working on some original content.
