How Important is Ocean Acidification?

Is this part of  Climate Change that many still deny is occurring?

Ocean acidification

Ocean acidification is the ongoing decrease in the pH of the Earth’s oceans, caused by the uptake of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. An estimated 30–40% of the carbon dioxide from human activity released into the atmosphere dissolves into oceans, rivers and lakes. To achieve chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to form carbonic acid.

11/24/16. Last evening The Maui Ocean Center (MOC)  featured yet another outstanding “Sea Talk” for the benefit of our community. This one featured Dr. Will Howard, an accredited geologist from Australia informing and educating those assembled in that exquisite room, with the wall of distraction, full of ulua , sharks, rays and assorted other sea-life.

  • . The room filled with about 50 guys as the good doctor presented about this area of concern. As shown he offered a lot of historical data showing the drastic change is the ocean’s acidity , nature’s attempt to cope with it, effect on coral growth and more.
    • We wish to express our mahalo to MOC for these continue valuable presentations by a wide variety of experts on numerous facts affecting our oceans. Recently they are taking this a step further and placing talks on you tube.     SEE https://www.mauioceancenter.com/search/you+tube
