Coastal and Ocean Acidification Forum at WHRC

A forum on Coastal and Ocean Acidification, whose hosts included US Congressman Bill Keating and Massachusetts State Representative Tim Madden, took place at WHRC on March 28, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The conference focused on the impact of increasing coastal and ocean acidity and its effects on coastal communities. Legislators, government officials, scientists, business leaders, economic stakeholders, and private citizens from throughout Southeastern Massachusetts discussed this “perfect storm” of factors that has put our region front and center in the climate crisis.

Three panels – legislative, economic stakeholders, and scientific/research – tackled the current challenges of coastal and ocean acidification and worked toward positive solutions to improve our coastal environment and economy.
