What we must know to prevent oceanic extinctions, on track to occur by 2050: "Acidification, Climate & Energy" was presented by Dr. Alex Cannara at Thorium Energy Alliance Conference #7 (TEAC7).

Carbonic Acid is what CO2 makes when combined with water. (Soda pop.)

Since seas dissolve CO2 well, they become more acidic every year we overload the natural carbon cycle (among plants, air, water & land).

Ceasing all CO2 emissions today would have little short-term effect on sea chemistry, as atmospheric carbon will still be absorbed into sea.

Calcifying sea life represents the ONLY natural+permanent carbon sequestration process on Earth, as dead sea life with carbon rich shells fall to ocean floor and are subducted.

If ocean acidification destroys calcifying sea life, then impact of carbon emissions may lead to an oceanic anoxic event.
