Storyboard Text

  •  Every day, 22 million tons of carbon dioxide from factories, cars, power plants and other human sources are absorbed by the world's oceans.
  • The oceans have become 30 percent more acidic because of the carbon pollution we're pumping into the atmosphere.
  • Two important planetary ecosystems, coral reefs and polar regions, are on the front lines of the acidification crisis. 
  • Meanwhile in the north and south polar regions, marine plankton will be lost; some are already growing thinner and weaker shells.
  • It's clear that this crisis may spin out of control, with devastating effects on vast numbers of species, from small shell-building oysters and reef fish to crabs, whales and sea otters.
