Patrick Moore is the Chair of the Energy, Ecology and Prosperity program at the Frontier Centre for Public Policy. He has been a leader in the international environmental field for over 40 years. Dr. Moore is a Co-Founder of Greenpeace and served for nine years as President of Greenpeace Canada and seven years as a Director of Greenpeace International. The pH of the world’s oceans varies from 7.5 to 8.3, well into the alkaline scale. It is therefore incorrect to state the oceans are acidic or that they will become acidic under any conceivable scenario. The term “acidification” is used to imply that the oceans will actually become acidic. It is perhaps just short of propaganda to use the language in this manner.
