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. Now imagine how this must work for fish in the ocean.

No, The Oceans Are Not Acidic

R-Squared Energy

Last week a widely-circulated CNN story declared: The Pacific Ocean is so acidic that it’s dissolving Dungeness crabs’ shells. The oceans aren’t actually acidic. The pH of the oceans is above 8, which makes it fairly basic. I wonder how acidic the oceans have become.”

Subject to the twin assaults of warming-caused bleaching and ocean acidification, it will be gone in a matter of decades in the absence of a dramatic reduction in global carbon emissions.

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. Global action to address the state of the ocean has never been more urgent. Ocean Conference in June 2020.

It can reverse ocean acidification by absorbing carbon dioxide. This story was originally published by Mother Jones and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. One day in January 2014, police rushed to a farm in Rasdorf, Germany, after flames burst from a barn.

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

AGreenLiving

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. Additionally, the warm waters affect the ocean’s oxygen levels.

The Blue Economy: Importance of Ocean Conservation

Green Tech Challenge

The Blue Economy is sustainable use of ocean resources for: economic growth, improved livelihoods, job creation, and ocean ecosystem health. Achieving a sustainable Blue Economy requires amplified conversation, education and intentional efforts in ocean conservation.

Climate change is adversely affecting childrens health worldwide

Human activities have similarly been breaching environmental limits, instigating biodiversity loss, depletion of freshwater, ocean acidification, soil degradation and other irreversible processes. 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.

Using Trees To Build A Better World

R-Squared Energy

Studies have shown that the oceans may sequester more carbon than our trees. Our oceans are absorbing more and more carbon to the point they are reaching saturation. This is a process called ocean acidification that is starting to tip to a point where life in our oceans must adapt or die out. I worked in Hawaii for five years for a man who owned plantation forests. Inevitably, I ran into people who complained when it was time to harvest these forests.

Elizabeth Warren Unveils ‘Blue New Deal’ with Support for Offshore Wind

GreenTechMedia

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren dropped yet another environmental proposal on Tuesday, pitching a variety of ocean-related conservation and energy plans under the banner of a “Blue New Deal.” ” “While the ocean is severely threatened, it can also be a major part of the climate solution — from providing new sources of clean energy to supporting a new future of ocean farming,” the plan reads.
