" 2) When carbon dioxide dissolves in the ocean it lowers the pH, making the ocean more acidic. Owing to a paucity of relevant observations, we have a limited understanding of the effects of pH reduction on marine biota. Coral reefs(2), calcareous plankton(3) and other organisms whose skeletons or shells contain calcium carbonate may be particularly affected. Most biota reside near the surface, where the greatest pH change would be expected to occur, but deep-ocean biota may be more sensitive to pH changes(4). The basis of the ocean food chain will be broken! "


I agree totally with Trim50

Marine mammal populations - going extinct (not excluding other species) Think about it ONE OUT FOUR going downhill due to shortage and starvation of oxygen - the ocean will become this huge swamp NO movement of nutrients.

Where would we go then?

My answers: 1) Yes

I remember since childhood vast numbers of whales (Eubalaena Australis Southern Right Whales) arrive visiting our shores for their annual migration (South Africa) for mating breeding so forth - This year it was said their numbers have been declining WHY? the water temperature is too warm, my god its winter, anybody that's born in Cape Town - knows we don't have warm water.. Marine Coastal Management is investigating, awaiting feedback.


At least we will see what Antarctica looked like..
