Are climate scientists doom-mongering? Bulk of research on impacts of ocean acidification is FLAWED, new study finds

For years scientists have warned that the oceans are becoming more acidic – and this spells disaster for marine life.But a review of the bulk of laboratory studies into the phenomenon have been flawed and unreliable, experts say.The research is the latest study to highlight difficulties with doom-mongering scientific predictions. The latest review of 465 scientific studies into the effects of ocean acidification on sea life said only 27 used an ‘appropriate experimental design’. And 278 studies were ‘clearly inappropriate’, which means a huge amount of research is not fit for purpose. Read the rest here  Read Crucial ocean-acidification models come up short @ Nature 16:59
