Save our oceans
MetadataShow full item record
Oceans have absorbed about a third of global carbon dioxide emissions, causing acidification. This has also resulted in coral bleaching. Ocean acidification is causing irreversible damage to coral reefs. With global warming of up to 2°C, 98 percent of coral reefs will die by 2050. A World Bank study shows that this would cause decrease in marine fish capture by about 50 percent in the southern Philippines by the year 2050.
