  • Acidification Of Our Oceans

    Our Oceans are dying. As we humans continue to fill the atmosphere with harmful gasses, our home planet is vanishing to life as we know it. The Oceans are acidifying and all our living animals throughout the globe are slowly meeting their fate. Ocean acidification is an emerging global problem. At first sight, you might think… oh it’s only the oceans that are being affected by this issue. However; if the oceans become acid like, then they wouldn’t contain any signs of life. If there is no life in the oceans, we are all going to fall to the inevitable feeling of hunger. In other words, we are all going to eventually starve to death unless we do something about this. The media is “too busy” covering all the new news on climate change, that…

  • The Effects Of Ocean Acidification

    drilling explosions and the catastrophic Gulf of Mexico oil spill as being a principal culprit of ocean acidification but have you ever thought that global warming actually has a much larger role in ocean acidification than we think? That is why we need to be educated on what ocean acidification is, what are the effects of ocean acidification, who are the ones being mostly affected, and how can we resolve this issue. According to NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), ocean…

  • Essay On Ocean Acidification

    essential in almost every aspect of human’s day to day life. Our oceans provide mouth-watering foods; they give supplies for making hair products, and also aide meteorologist in predicting our weather from day-to-day. The magnificent oceans are home to more organisms and aquatic life than is fathomable. What if we did not have our oceans to keep us healthy? The vivacious lives that make our oceans so beautifully helpful are at great danger of depletion. ”Ocean acidification is a global…

  • Ocean Acidification Speech

    tree-hugger, or a person belonging to any other group or stereotype you may expect me to belong to. I am a Republican and a steadfast Republican at that. I belong to the party of “shut up and drill.” With that being said, the action by both parties to save planet Earth is not nearly great enough. Millennials, my generation, are being handed issues that are hundreds of years in the making. Today, I write to you to express my concern about one specific issue, ocean acidification. Ocean…

  • Ocean Acidification

    Due to the carbon dioxide levels increasing over time, the acidification of the ocean has become much stronger. Behavior patterns are not the only thing changing because of the rising temperatures; the migration patterns are changing as well. I chose to analyze a marine science article published by Inside Science News. The article, “Ocean Acidification May Change How Sharks Behave,” was based on a study that was trying to prove how swimming patterns and temperature changes would affect a shark’s…

  • Ocean Acidification Effects On Marine Life

    Ocean acidification plays an important role in how healthy the oceans ecosystems are because it allows some species to increase, but also has several negative effects that could cause species to become extinct. Ocean acidification occurs as the ocean absorbs carbon dioxide from the air which then causes the ocean 's pH level to decrease. As the ocean 's acid levels increase, it can affect marine life by helping organisms who make energy by combining sunlight and carbon dioxide, but hurts the…

  • Examples Of Ocean Acidification

    Topic B: Ocean acidification and coral reefs Introduction • Ocean acidification is a reduction in the pH of the water in the ocean as a result of increased carbon dioxide uptake in the ocean due to humans burning fossil fuels at such a high rate. • Unless drastic changes are made in regards to CO2 emissions, the rate of ocean acidification is projected to significantly increase over the next century. It is currently estimated that without any changes the pH of the oceans will be 7.8 by 2100 (…

  • Ocean Acidification Essay

    Increased ocean acidification isn’t the only thing affecting the ocean, but it is very problematic because it erodes aragonite which is a mineral of calcium carbonate. In other words it kills corals and causes the hard exoskeleton to erode. Action needs to be taken to ensure the survival of corals and the creatures that rely on coral reefs to survive. Coral reefs are sources of food for millions of people, but also are sources of medicines. As coral reefs disappear so do the organisms that are…

  • What Is Ocean Acidification?

    As mentioned previously, ocean acidification has internal effects on different developmental stages in the growth and reproduction of marine animals. From the first spark of life of fertilization to the growth of these species can be affected. The 2005 Kyoto University in Japan research determined that carbon dioxide concentration of 200ppm being pumped into the seawater reduces growth rates for many sea species (Hardt & Safina 71). Other experiments show the struggle of phytoplankton balancing…

  • Reduce Ocean Acidification

    There are no doubt many threats to our oceans and waterways at this point in time. However there is one major threat to water quality that humans are responsible for. When we burn fossil fuel, there are many gaseous compounds released into the atmosphere. Doesn’t sound that bad does it? However, when some of these compounded gases react with water, the water is now acidic. The gas that is produced when burning these fuels is carbon dioxide (CO2). Ocean acidification is when carbon dioxide…
