Following the Ocean in a High CO2 World conference in Tasmania at the very beginning of May, we held the third science workshop for the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) at the CSIRO Marine Laboratories in Hobart. The meeting included 135 people from 37 nations who gathered to figure out how to expand the monitoring of ocean acidification around the globe to better understand it.  Thanks to some very special donors, The Ocean Foundation was able to sponsor the travel of scientists from countries with limited monitoring capacity to attend this meeting.

I spent the beginning of May in Van Diemen’s Land, a penal colony established by Great Britain in 1803.  Today, it is known as Tasmania, one of the six original colonies that became a state in modern Australia.  As you might imagine, the history of this place is dark and very disturbing. As a result, it seemed an appropriate place to meet and speak of a gnawing fear, a dreaded plague known as ocean acidification.

In the streets of Lau Fau Shan, a small community in the Northwest tip of Hong Kong’s New Territories, the air smells sweet and salty. On a sunny day, hundreds of oysters lie atop drying racks – the town squares transformed into factories for Lau Fau Shan’s famous delicacy, the sundried “golden” oyster. At the small harbor, banks and jetties are built from stacks of oyster shells.

“I’ve never seen it like this before.”

That is what I have heard over and over as I traveled to different regions in the past couple of weeks—in La Jolla and Laguna Beach, in Portland and in Rockland, in Boston and Cambridge, in New Orleans and Covington, in Key West and Savannah.

I just returned from four and a half days in California. I love going back to visit my home state and see familiar sights, smell the coastal sage scrub, hear the gulls calling and the crashing waves, and walk miles on the beach in the morning fog.
