Please share this to help spread awareness about ocean acidification. #Save the #ocean. #SOS. Increasing levels of carbon dioxide and decreasing of pH level of seawater is killing all these beautiful organisms.
Ocean Acidification by the Alliance for Climate Education: CO2 + H2O = H2CO3 which is carbonic acid. when it deprotonates as it does in water it turns into an H+ ion, which is the acid part and HCO3- which is bicarbonate ion so for every co2 added you get a bicarbonate and an acid or H+ ion.
This groundbreaking NRDC documentary explores the startling phenomenon of ocean acidification, which may soon challenge marine life on a scale not seen for tens of millions of years. The film, featuring Sigourney Weaver, originally aired on Discovery Planet Green.
The powerful before-and-after photographs below were shared as evidence of ocean acidification at the 2012 International Coral Reef Symposium in Australia. Please help spread awareness about ocean acidification by pinning these before-and-after photos and starting the conversation about ocean conservation. #OceanAcidification
