Coral reefs: ecosystems of environmental and human value coral reefs boast some of the richest in biodiversity on the planet coral reefs cover an area of over 280,000 km 2 and support thousands of species in what many describe as the rainforests of the seas.
Coral reefs are found all around the world in tropical and subtropical oceans they are usually found in shallow areas at a depth of less than 150 feet however, some coral reefs extend even deeper, up to about 450 feet deep. For future generations, big trouble the risks are much greater over the long run than over the next few decades, but the emissions that create those risks are happening now.

What is plastic pollution as the world's population continues to grow, so does the amount of garbage that people produce on-the-go lifestyles require easily disposable products, such as soda cans or bottles of water, but the accumulation of these products has led to increasing amounts of plastic pollution around the world.

Buffering will take thousands of years, which is way too long a period of time for the ocean organisms affected now and in the near future so far, the signs of acidification visible to humans are few. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof selah.

The apocalypse has a new date: 2048 that's when the world's oceans will be empty of fish, predicts an international team of ecologists and economists. Ocean acidification is occurring because excess carbon dioxide (co2) in the atmosphere is being absorbed at the surface of the ocean at an increasing rate this excess co2 results in more hydrogen ions, which increases the acidity of the ocean. Currently, less than 1% of the ocean is protected, although by 2020, the international community has agreed to raise this to 10% reserves, when properly patrolled and monitored, do protect marine. The ocean is full of trash and other forms of pollution from humans like noise pollution the ocean is not a garbage can, people people are creating too much trash and a lot of it is ending up in the oceans.

The impact of the oceans doesn't just stop at the water's edge because changes in the oceans are drivers of our climate, weather and biodiversity the oceans are so important that i believe they are a fulcrum. Plastic pollution, which is set to trouble between 2015 and 2025 without intervention, has a physical presence in the oceans, and can accumulate on the coasts or in particular areas of the sea.
