Ocean acidification is a feedback mechanism, affected by a change in atmospheric CO2 levels. As such, reducing the amount of atmospheric CO2 will then reduce the amount of carbonic acid in the oceans, and there’s not really any other way to fix this issue globally. How can we achieve this? Well, Limiting deforestation and the … More Ocean Acidification- More than just a sour taste (pt.3)
