  • To be launched at COP-19 in Warsaw in November.Unique features:- Great infographics- Confidence levels (like IPCC) on statementsNB. First bullet: Oceans [H+] has increased by 26 % since the start of the industrial revolutionEcosystems will change in the future, but how is difficult to predictThe magnitude of the socio-economic impacts are uncertain.Some people will need to adapt. E.g. Shellfish industry is already adapting on Pacific US coast.

  • • 26 % increase in acidity due to CO2 emissions • Many organisms show adverse effects (corals, molluscs) • Some thrive (e.g. seagrasses) • Ecosystems will change in the future • There will be socio-economic impacts and need for adaptation • Reducing CO2 emissions will reduce impacts
  • pH 1850
  • pH 2100
  • Aragonite saturation 1850
  • Aragonite saturation 2100
  • Commercially important organisms
  • After Peters et al., 2013 Observed CO2 emissions and emissions scenarios to 2100
  • Confidence levels (IPCC)
