5 Ways We Can Stop Ocean Acidification

The Environmental Blog

Although it may not be discussed frequently, ocean acidification is one of the biggest problems humanity (and the environment) faces today. The rising acidity of the ocean is not only harming biodiversity and marine ecosystems, but is impacting human industries that rely on the ocean’s resources.

Ocean Acidification: The Other Carbon Dioxide Problem

Green Living Guy

The post Ocean Acidification: The Other Carbon Dioxide Problem appeared first on Green Living Guy. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the release of carbon dioxide (CO2) from humankind's industrial and agricultural activities has increased the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.

What are ‘planetary boundaries’ and why should we care?

Envirotec Magazine

Ocean-acidification is still, just, in the green, and so is aerosol pollution and dust. Three are based on what we take from the system: biodiversity loss fresh water land use. In last week’s update, the research team found we had now gone beyond the safe zone into dangerous territory in six of the nine processes.

Fish struggle with warming oceans and acidification

Inhabitat - Innovation

Fish face a new threat — ocean acidification caused by global warming. In a recent study published in Global Change Biology, researchers found that warming waters and acidification could adversely affect how fish interact in groups.

Leveraging the ocean's carbon removal potential


In addition to these opportunities, a range of ocean-based carbon removal approaches could help capture and store billions of tons of carbon. Importantly, these approaches would not increase ocean acidification. The ocean absorbs just under one-third of anthropogenic CO2 emissions, contributing to a rise in ocean acidification.

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.
