Corals in the Anthropocene

November 6, 2012

Ocean acidification and warming – both caused by the release of carbon dioxide when we burn fossil fuels – are threatening coral ecosystems around the world. I interviewed climatologist Ken Caldeira about the future of reefs for the BBC radio series The Age We Made, produced by Andrew Luck-Baker, who wrote this great post.

Only a short section of our conversation made it into the programme, but Ken had some really interesting things to say, so here’s a longer version of the interview.

    such an interesting – though, depressing interview.

    very interesting… I did my undergrda final project on this. A thoroughly overlooked subject. Thanks for bringing it to light.
