Crustose Coralline Algae in a CO2-Enriched Ocean: Can they long survive the "OA" factor? ... and why is it so important that they do?

Subject Index Summary
Clouds (Cover): Understanding how earth's clouds respond to anthropogenic-induced perturbations of the atmosphere is of paramount importance in determining the impact of the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content on global climate, for both natural and man-made aerosols have a strong influence on both cloud albedo and amount, with a global mean forcing of approximately the same magnitude as that of mankind's production of greenhouse gases, but of opposite sign.
