Excessive carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is largely absorbed by the worlds oceans.

This changes the pH balance in the water.

Anyone with a fish tank knows what happens when the pH balance goes awry.

I’m also posting this under conservation, but I was first clued into this issue because of something called coral bleaching.

In addition to more acidic oceans, the temperature is increasing dramatically due to global warming. This is also partly to blame for the wide destruction and disappearance of coral reefs, which some researchers predict will be wiped out entirely by 2050.
