“Environmental conditions throughout the world ocean are changing in response to fossil fuel emissions and greenhouse warming in the atmosphere. Climate change and high carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are, in turn, causing a domino-like series of changes in ocean conditions, including ocean warming, decreased oxygen content of deep ocean waters due to reduced mixing of oxygenated surface waters to depth, and ocean acidification.”
—Scientist Jim Barry

4th-level-chart

An 800,000-year record of atmospheric gas samples reveals a very recent and dramatic shift in carbon dioxide concentrations due in large part to the burning of fossil fuel. The ocean has absorbed roughly 30 percent of all CO2 released into the atmosphere since the industrial revolution, resulting in a 26 percent increase in its acidity. Never before has human civilization experienced such conditions.
