Ocean Acidification: What Is it and Why Should I Care?
Ask a roomful of people what impact burning fossil fuels is having on our planet and a large percentage of them will answer correctly that it is affecting climate and causing the Earth to warm up. In contrast very few, if any, will know that burning fossil fuels is also causing the world’s oceans to become more acidic, a process known as ocean acidification. Danny Gleason, Director of the Institute for Coastal Plain Science at Georgia Southern University will provide a summary of the basic chemistry behind ocean acidification, outline some of the unusual and significant ways ocean acidification is affecting marine organisms, and provide some recommendations on what we can all do to decrease the rate at which the oceans are acidifying.
