Blue deep water abstract natural background.

With 71% of planet Earth’s surface being water covered, not including the water that exists in the air, icecaps, glaciers, and in the ground, it’s safe to say that water is a vital part of our everyday lives and of our futures. Unfortunately, the climate change that our planet is currently facing is causing some nasty consequences.

Excessive use of fossil fuels (such as coal, oil and natural gas) causes carbon dioxide emissions to be released into the atmosphere, which subsequently causes the ocean to absorb 80-90% of the heat emissions. Seeing as how the ocean is preserved at a delicate balance, the increase in water temperatures has caused devastation to the oceans wildlife due to melting glaciers and uninhabitable water temperatures. Along with the disappearance of habitable locations for marine wildlife, the carbon pollution being distributed into the air by fossil fuels has triggered a chemical reaction causing the pH balance of the water to drop, and therefore increasing the ocean’s level of acidity.
While the effects of carbon emissions already qualifies as mass devastation, unfortunately it is only the tip of the melting iceberg…
The effects of plastic pollution in the water, and the unsustainable marine agriculture practices have a huge impact on…
