Carbon in our air is also causing another problem for our oceans. The Carbon gets absorbed by sea water and it makes the sea-water more acidic. Since sea creatures make shells from chemicals in the water, a change to the ocean's chemistry makes it difficult for many sea creatures to form shells. Like this coral that we caught in our nets the other day.
Remember meeting Dr. Kunkel yesterday? His believes that lobsters may be effected by ocean acidification.
