    In the modern industrial era, the levels of Carbon Dioxide produced are much more significant than in years before. Due to Carbon Dioxides involvement in ocean acidification, this is a major issue. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the pH of the ocean surface has fallen by 0.1 units. Although this may not seem significant, due to the logarithmic properties of the pH scale, this change signifies about a 30% increase in ocean acidity. If this issue isn’t addressed, there will be dire

    It is a recorded fact that the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere today is at the highest level ever recorded or studied. The large number of invasive carbon dioxide molecules is causing detrimental problems in the environment. This gas is linked to the Earth’s drastically rising temperatures, causing the rising sea level and thousands of arctic animals to lose their homes. This is an unignorable problem that needs great minds who are passionate and determined in this field. The most substantial

    In America, we are starting to experience what I call the Climate Crisis and the big question is, do Americans seek to decrease our carbon emissions? Or do we spend the money to mitigate the long-term effects of Climate Change? Carbon Dioxide is one of the few gases in our atmosphere that trap heat and provide Earth with what we know as the Greenhouse Effect. Without this greenhouse effect, the dense warm blanket that surrounds our atmosphere wouldn’t exist. Well, according to the National Oceanic

    1. A Carbon dioxide (CO2) absorbs energy from the sun, then releases it back into earth; it is the second largest greenhouse gas after water vapour. Carbon dioxide releases out a harmful gas, which is dissolved out to the atmosphere determined by temperature. However CO2 is not one of the main impulsive forces in causing climate shifts, but as the climate cools the concentration of CO2 decreases this then has a further cooling effect. Causing this irregular rise and fall in CO2 levels is the shift
