The pH scale

Talk about the potential effects of ocean acidification on deep-sea corals has me wondering the case of acid rain in North American lakes. This is something we understand much better.

Will ocean acidification affect deep-water corals?

The global ocean has already taken up half of the atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by humans over the last 200 years, so the ongoing effects of climate change are dampened. That’s right, you can thank the ocean for saving the planet so far.
