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

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.
