Increae in PH in the Pacific

Did anybody else read the cruise report from a recent NOAA cruise that terminated in Seward Alaska? It was kind of interesting (scary as hell actually). It seems that the Oceans are pretty good at eating up (absorbing) the excessive amounts of CO2 that are the by product of Fossil Fuel consumption. The only problem appears to be that in so doing the PH (acid) level of the oceans is on the rise and is causing some early signs of being detremental to the formation of shells in most of the creitters that have shells.
Can you imagine how big a crash the elimination of Krill would cause! I am sure glad we keep spending billions on space exploration and millions on Ocean research. Maybe there is Krill in the methane oceans on Titan.
