Acid Oceans: The consequence of greenhouse gases. Reducing carbon emissions might have unknown effects on global temperature oscillations, but would help prevent ocean acidification. We're having a change in water chemistry, so 20 years from now the system we're looking at could be affected dramatically but we're not really sure how. So we see a train wreck coming,... carbon absorption in the oceans is damaging key creatures' hard shells or skeletons.. Oceans absorb about 25 percent of the world's greenhouse gases pumped into the atmosphere from human activities each year,... That helps slow global warming in the atmosphere,... Ocean acidity could increase 150 percent just by mid-century
