June 22nd 2012:Why is the Ocean Becoming Acidic and Why Should We Care?

What do coal plants, volcanoes, and your breath have in common? Carbon emissions. Of course, there are countless examples of additional sources of carbon emissions – some natural, some man-made – but our planet’s ability to absorb all that carbon is strained, to say the least. Wetlands, forests and oceans are the systems that bear the greatest capacity to extract carbon from the atmosphere, but as Earth’s CO2 levels continue to rise, and forests and wetlands increasingly succumb to development, the ocean is left to do more of the heavy lifting when it comes to carbon sequestration.

Carbon emissions. Of course, there are countless examples of additional sources of carbon emissions – some natural, some man-made – but our planet’s ability to absorb all that carbon is strained, to say the least. Wetlands, forests and oceans are the systems that bear the greatest capacity to extract carbon from the atmosphere, but as Earth’s CO2 levels continue to rise, and forests and wetlands increasingly succumb to development, the ocean is left to do more of the heavy lifting when it comes to carbon sequestration. As a result, the ocean is becoming more acidic and more hostile to marine life. Even if you don’t eat seafood, the increased acidity of the ocean is having a negative impact on human life. Tune in today as we talk with Brita Belli, editor-in-chief of E-The Environmental Magazine, as she discusses her cover story in this month’s edition: “Oceans on Acid – Rising carbon emissions are changing the chemistry of our seas, threatening shellfish, coral and the entire ocean food web.” VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
