Many of my friends from The Seattle Times had a hand in this wonderful project:
Basically, the series explains how the increased carbon dioxide levels have caused the damage to the Pacific Ocean that affects many marine creatures' way of life and in turn impact many of the industries that are important to Washingtonians (oysters, for one) and other areas of this country.
They were able to do this ambitious project because of a $12,000 grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
I wanted to share it with you all because I think some of you may be interested in this topic. The website is ripe with video, interactive graphics and other photos that really enhance the great reporting done by Craig Welch.
For me, projects like this is why long-form journalism still is important and how the web can be more than a bunch of click-bait opinion pieces.
