Ocean Acidification

In a nutshell, ocean acidification is incredibly easy to understand: much of the carbon dioxide that humans emit into the atmosphere ends up dissolved in the ocean, where it creates carbonic acid that makes ocean water more acidic. This rising acidity will eventually kill off much of the life in the ocean unless humanity stops emitting carbon dioxide. These videos help bring this problem to life:
