Due to the large amounts of carbon dioxide we are pumping into the atmosphere in factories and large cities we are causing the ocean to be more acidic.
Due to the large amounts of carbon dioxide we are destroying coral reefs.
Shell-forming animals like corals, crabs, oysters and urchins are getting hit first because ocean acidification robs seawater of the compounds these creatures need to build shells and skeletons, impairing their development and, ultimately, their survival.
In the north and south polar regions, marine plankton will be lost; some are already growing thinner and weaker shells.
The world's oceans are in trouble. Every day, 22 million tons of carbon dioxide from factories, cars, power plants and other human sources are absorbed by the world's oceans.
Due to all the carbon dioxide being released into the air we are causing to ocean to become more acidic which could take away one of our major sources of food.
