    • On March 11, 2009, by SeaChange - You may or may not know that we've been using the ocean as a vast toilet. But it's actually the lungs of this planet; it's become urgent to protect and study the ocean in an unprecedented manner, specifically because of ocean acidification, the underbelly of climate change. This bill is a good first step. For more information about ocean acidification, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocean_acidification
