We try to understand why the US public is so divided over global warming causes and issues? Inside Story Americas, Shihab Rattansi discusses with guests: Michael Mann, the director of Penn State University's Earth System Science Center and author of 'The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars'; Dana Nuccitelli, an environmental scientist who writes for the Skeptical Science blog. He was involved in the survey of scientific literature on climate science that was published this week. And Rick Piltz, the director and founder of Climate Science Watch.

The Arctic seas are being made rapidly more acidic by carbon-dioxide emissions, according to a new report. Scientists from Norway's Center for International Climate and Environmental Research monitored widespread changes in ocean chemistry in the region. They say even if CO2 emissions stopped now, it would take tens of thousands of years for Arctic Ocean chemistry to revert to pre-industrial levels. Many creatures, including commercially valuable fish, could be affected. They forecast major changes in the marine ecosystem, but say...
