Shelled Animals Are Dissolving In The Ocean Thanks To Global Warming! BOO!

As humans continue to pour carbon dioxide into the ozone, the ocean is paying a price.

And it's not just the polar ice caps that are feeling the pain — snails, mollusks, and corals are crippling too.

The pH level of the ocean is steadily becoming more acidic, at a rate of 0.1 percent per century.

This is the highest it has been in over 300 MILLION years!

The pteropod marine snail is dissolving as we speak, as the ocean's supply of aragonite wears thin in the Anarctic.

These snails use aragonite to create their shells. CO2 dissolves in water, forming carbonic acid which is breaking down all the argonite.

The same will happen to corals and mollusks; they use carbonate but this compound is disappearing too.

While aragonite is plentiful in most of the ocean, there are areas where it is completely gone!

Poor snails! We HAVE to lower our carbon dioxide emissions!!!!

RIGHT NOW!!!!
