Rising CO2 levels threaten oceans

coral.jpgRegardless of over all climate change, rising levels of CO2 in the atmosphere from human activity will threaten marine life in the Earth’s oceans.

Researchers from the University of Illinois and the Carnegie Institution found that the oceans will absorb increased amounts of CO2 present in the atmosphere and increase the overall acidity of the oceans.

As the acidity of the oceans increases, organisms with hard shells will find it more difficult to exist. Ken Caldeira, of the Carnegie Institution,explains that unless we find a way to cut carbon dioxide emissions, “coral reefs will go the way of the dodo.”
