Many localized acidification hotspots can be traced to local contributors of acidity that can be addressed using existing laws, they wrote.... "We identified practical steps communities can take today to counter local sources of acidity." The paper, entitled "Mitigating Local Causes of Ocean Acidification with Existing Laws," is the first to lay out how acidification hotspots can be reduced by applying federal and state laws and policies at a local level....
