Ocean acidification refers to the decrease in pH levels of seawater caused by the absorption of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.
I think the concept of human-caused ocean acidification challenges our understanding of the relationship between human activity and the natural world.
To me, it highlights the interconnectedness and interdependence of different ecosystems and how human activities in one part of the world can have significant impacts on ecosystems and species in other parts of the world.
It challenges our understanding of the limits of human control and manipulation of the natural world. It challenges the traditional linear understanding of cause and effect relationships between human activities and environmental impacts, and the idea that human activities and natural processes can be easily separated.
It is a reminder that the relationship between human activities and the natural world is not always straightforward.
okay- this has been going on for decades. It is more a function of overpopulation that it is fossil fuel. Maybe in the future there will be new technologies that will provide us with energy that will not involve CO2 emissions but we are not there and electric cars is not the answer because the energy used to charge the batteries has to come from a power plant that burns fossil fuel. The population in the US has doubled in the last 50 years. It is no coincidence that we are also using more energy and crating more CO2 is not a coincidence.
