Lots of Co2 is being released because of things like coal burning factories.
Oceans require a particular level of pH to maintain the natural biochemistry needed to allow a healthy ecosystem. When oceans absorb high levels of carbon dioxide, the acidity levels raise and the natural order of the ocean becomes compromised.
The oceans have become 30 percent more acidic because of the carbon pollution we're pumping into the atmosphere.
This is causing our coral reefs to collapse, oyster beds to disappear and tiny creatures that are important food sources to get smaller and weaker.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
The industrial revolution is a HUGE cause of ocean acidification. Almost everything we do, from using electricity to going to work affects the quality of air and the ocean.
These actions interrupt the food chain, because certain underwater animals die off. So , animals depending on them die off too, and so on.
We can reduce ocean acidification by being mindful of our pollution rates , walk , bike , or use public transportation, and other enviromental friendly things.
