      Study: Oceans becoming more acidic
      Australian scientists are warning the world's oceans are becoming more
      acidic as they absorb more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
      Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research
      Organization and the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystem Cooperative
      Research Center have been collecting and analyzing water samples from
      the Southern Ocean.

      They have found the level of carbon dioxide in the ocean has increased
      50 percent over 100 years and predict it will double again during the
      next 50 years, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported Thursday.
