Lobsters and weeds... Very scary stuff

Apparently the current acidification of the seas is proceeding at a rate ten times greater than the previous high point of record and it is some seriously scary stuff. Imagine an ocean where most of the sea life has died out and the only thing left were weeds and the odd lobster (lobster being more resistant to acidification than most sea life).

Not such a pretty picture is it?
