Ocean Conservation: Ocean Acidification and the Impacts of Fish Migration

Green Tech Challenge

Put simply, ocean acidification is the imbalance of chemical content in ocean water; whereby there is increased acidity, and upward temperature changes. The ocean has experienced a 26% pH drop in the last century. Ocean acidification has negative effects on sea-life and the ecosystem. Another concerning effect of ocean acidification is fish migration, which has been occurring in large and increasing numbers.

The new vocabulary of climate change was written in Icelandic


For most people, what climate change really means for humanity’s future hasn’t sunk in yet; otherwise, he reasons, everyone would be clamoring for action. During the years he spent gathering research for his book, the world changed dramatically.

Climate change is adversely affecting childrens health worldwide


Today’s children are facing climate crisis-related health issues, warns The Lancet ’s Countdown on Health and Climate Change, the annual research collaboratively conducted by 35 global institutions. Collated and published each year before the international negotiations of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), The Lancet ’s Countdown strongly emphasizes that tackling climate change would be a significant global health opportunity.

IPCC landmark report warns about the state of the oceans, polar ice content and the climate crisis


The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) — which is, in fact, the UN body responsible for communicating on the deteriorating climate — has officially recognized the oceans as a critical component in the climate change crisis. Warming ocean temperatures are becoming commonplace and are melting ice sheets and glaciers and contributing to rising sea levels. But our climate is in dire crisis.

'Every fraction of warming matters': World careering towards irreversible climate impacts, top scientists warn

Business Green

Landmark IPCC report provides wave of stark warnings, but stresses that rapidly putting the global economy on course to net zero emissions by 2050 could hugely reduce the escalating impacts that will result from a warmer world. The changes we experience will increase with additional warming.".

UN report: Ocean-based climate action could deliver a fifth of emissions cuts needed to limit temperature rise to 1.5°C

Envirotec Magazine

Ocean-based climate action can play a much bigger role in shrinking the world’s carbon footprint than was previously thought. It could deliver up to a fifth (21%, or 11 GtCO2e) of the annual greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions cuts needed in 2050 to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C. Our future health and prosperity are closely linked to the state of the ocean,” said Erna Solberg, co-chair of the High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy and Prime Minister of Norway.

Dire Scientific Warnings from the Study of Fossilized Shells and Our Hope for the Future

Green Market Oracle

A slew of recent studies corroborate the scientific consensus on climate change. While individual weather events help to raise awareness, it is the long-term trends that reveal that we are in a climate emergency and on the cusp of the collapse of civilization.

'Climate breakdown has already begun': Green figures react to IPCC's landmark climate warning

Business Green

Roundup of reaction from politicians, NGOs, and business figures as the world's top climate scientists serve up latest evidence on scale of potential climate cataclysm ahead. Global heating is affecting every region on Earth, with many of the changes becoming irreversible. "We

Carbfix turns emissions into stone


” Carbon emissions are the top reason for global warming and a major factor in extreme weather events and ocean acidification. Carbfix aims to cut climate change off at the knees and help the world reach the Paris agreement goals. An Icelandic startup has an intriguing solution to the emissions problem: turn carbon into stone.

Meat Industry Climate Claims – Criticisms and Concerns


For more information, read our full investigation into the meat industry’s messaging on climate change. Meat companies downplay their climate impacts by excluding the majority of their emissions. Gt CO2e – “almost as much as global food emissions today.”.

The answer to climate-killing cow farts may come from the sea


This story was originally published by Mother Jones and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. But the incident pointed to a serious problem: Ruminant livestock, mostly cattle, account for 30 percent of all global methane emissions, pumping out 3 gigatons of the gas every year in their burps, farts, and manure. According to the United Nations , reducing methane emissions from cows could be one of the quickest ways to slow climate change.
