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.

You might recall a month or so ago I started a new project on the site, Chemunicate, with which I aim to work with chemistry researchers and help produce graphics explaining their work in a straigh…

Changes to ocean pH mean that some organisms struggle to make shells. Now, the ability to detect crucial chemical signals is also being altered for some species.

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- "The name given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of the Earth's oceans, caused by the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere." Pictured here is the before and after of Ocean Acidification in the Florida Keys

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

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Of Climate Change

Amazing New Process Treats Wastewater, Captures Carbon and Makes Renewable Energy An electrochemical reaction that absorbs more than it releases while creating renewable energy could transform emission-heavy industries

Impact of ocean acidification on marine food webs

Ocean Food Web- Ocean acidification poses grave threats to Krill, plankton, shellfish and corals—the loss of which would impact nearly every ocean creature and shore bird. and ultimately us!

Lately, I've seen a lot of simple animation videos that have easily explained issues like ocean acidification. Perfectly executed, these kinds of videos could be a great resource for our education team!

The Science of Ocean Acidification

What is the 'other carbon dioxide problem'? How are humans driving changes in the chemistry of the ocean, and what might this mean for marine ecosystems in the future?
