    ”The total change of ocean acidity since pre-industrial (times)... is 25%, and 6% was done within the last 10 years,“ said WMO scientific officer Oksana Tarasova.”

    So what's the actual number then? Nowhere to be found.

    If the seas were 1% acidic, they would only be 1.25% acidic now.

    Without this number this article is rubbish.

    This is a totally false statement and scientifically unsupportable. It is disgraceful how these people deceive the public with a pseudo voice of “authority”.

    WMO is of course another UN body.
