Excess Carbon Will Damage Shellfish and Corals

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute confirms that ocean acidification due to excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will damage mollusks and corals in as little as ten to fifty years.

We are not only talking about the importance of shellfish and corals to many other marine animals, but also the importance of shellfish and corals to people as food for us, and food and shelter for other foods (fish) for us.

Let's not forget that fish supply the greatest percentage of the world's protein consumed by humans.

This is why we need to build and transition to a clean energy economy as soon as possible.
