Oceans to End Tomorrow, Women and Minorities Hardest Hit
The BBC reports breathlessly
The oceans are in a worse state than previously suspected, according to an expert panel of scientists.
In a new report, they warn that ocean life is "at high risk of entering a phase of extinction of marine species unprecedented in human history".
Who are these experts?
The panel was convened by the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO), and brought together experts from different disciplines, including coral reef ecologists, toxicologists, and fisheries scientists.

. Curiously, they don't have an "about us" page listing the members. But their mission statement is edifying:
The International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO) was established by scientists with the aim of saving the Earth and all life on it.
What do you think the odds of a group with that agenda reporting that the ocean(sic) was fine and getting better? Fortunately they have an easy solution:
"We have to bring down CO2 emissions to zero within about 20 years," Professor Hoegh-Guldberg told BBC News.
Is that all?
