The Unsettled Science of Ocean Warming and Acidification: Just how well do we understand the two phenomena and their implications?

Subject Index Summary
Storms (Australia/New Zealand): In spite of model-based claims to the contrary, there is little room left to doubt that CO2-induced global warming will NOT lead to increases in the frequency and magnitude of storms.
