On Thursday, Ross Reynolds, host of 94.9 KUOW’s new show “The Record,” interviewed Seattle Times environment reporter Craig Welch about the newspaper’s series on ocean acidification, “Sea Change: The Pacific’s Perilous Turn.”
In the interview, Reynolds asked Welch about threats to the oyster industry, Alaska’s crab industry and about why listeners should care about how carbon dioxide emissions are changing the chemistry of the seas.
In Sunday’s Seattle Times, an editorial points out that Times environmental reporter Craig Welch and photographer Steve Ringman “present an extraordinary window on a scientific fact: The oceans are rapidly acidifying.” If we don’t act fast to undo the damage, the consequences for the oceans – and for us, whose lives depend on them – are profound. “Speed is of the essence.”
