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. We have written, here , that ocean acidification disrupts the growth and productive health of some sea life, the most vulnerable being shellfish larvae, and developing fish.

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.

'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.

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

Business Green

The intensifying storms, flooding, sea level rise, heatwaves, wildfires, and drought that are on the way could prove hugely challenging to the global economy, or they could prove genuinely catastrophic - the emissions pathway the world opts for will likely determine which scenario plays out.

It sounds too good to be true — spread some rocks on a beach and the ocean will do the work to remove carbon dioxide from the air, reversing global warming. When rain falls on volcanic rocks, it weathers them down, then flows into the ocean. There, oceans further break down the rocks. Carbon dioxide removed from the air becomes bicarbonate, which helps grow the shells of marine organisms and is stored in limestone on the ocean floor.
