Learn About 5 Scary Consequences to Ocean Acidification

Learn About 5 Scary Consequences to Ocean Acidification

We’ve all heard it before: climate change is affecting our planet. And not in a good way.

But most of what we hear, is about how climate change will affect our atmosphere.

In this article, we’ll cover a less-discussed, but just-as-important climate change issue: ocean acidification.

Read this article to learn…

  1. How ocean acidification happens
  2. And 5 scary consequences to ocean acidification
  3. What will happen if we don’t slow down ocean acidification
  4. How to slow down ocean acidification
  5. A summary of the above points

Ready?
Let’s get started!

A.      How ocean acidification happens

Since the industrial revolution, we have begun to burn a lot of fossil fuels. In doing so, we have released a lot of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the air.

As we mentioned earlier, we know that CO2 affects the atmosphere. But what most people don’t know, is that CO2  affects our oceans.

How?

Eventually…some of that CO2 falls back down into our oceans. How much?

Our oceans have absorbed about HALF of all human-produced CO2 emissions.

When CO2 dissolves in our oceans, it increases hydrogen ions. Those hydrogen ions, then bond with carbonate ions to form carbonic acid. This leads to a lower ocean pH level.

In other words…

When we pollute into the air, the ocean gets more acidic.

Take a look at the diagram below to see an illustration.
future and past ocean ph levels-Consequences to Ocean Acidification - Dolphinaris in Playa del Carmen

You see? The higher the CO2, the lower the ocean pH levels (lower pH, means more acidic).

Now let’s examine…

 5 scary consequences to ocean acidification.

1.       Pteropods

Sometimes called a “sea butterfly”, pteropods are tiny marine creatures. They’re actually about the size of a small pea.

While they may be small in stature, they are largely connected to the food web of the ocean.

Many fish, and even krill, have pteropods as part of their diet, or eat animals that eat pteropods.

Watch what happens to a pteropod’s shell after spending 45 days in sea water with a pH level of 7.8 (more on this later).

pteropods dissolving 45 days-Consequences to Ocean Acidification- Dolphinaris

As you can see—almost overnight—the pteropod’s shell rapidly dissolved.

2.       Shellfish

As we mentioned earlier, due to CO2 pollution, carbonate ions are bonding with hydrogen ions.

Why is this important?

Because shellfish need carbonate ions to help form their protective shells made of calcium carbonate (CaCo3).

Shellfish include mollusks, crustaceans, sea-urchins, crabs, planktons and other marine species.

These species are being robbed of a fundamental building block necessary to their survival.

3.       Fish

While fish aren’t don’t suffer the same dire consequences, they are still affected nonetheless.

They need to expel any excess acid. How? Through their gills, kidneys, and intestines. This process takes precious energy. Energy that could have been used to digest food or escape predators.

It also means fish sizes will get smaller.

fish shrinking in size due to climate change-consequences to ocean acidification - Dolphinaris in Barcelo

4.       Coral reefs

Coral reefs are also composed of calcium carbonate. They use it to build their “hard skeleton”. This is especially true in the early stages of development.

With more carbonate ions bonding with hydrogen ions, that means less carbonate ions available for coral reefs.

The result?

A more brittle coral reef that has trouble reproducing.

Not only can entire coral reefs die, but the organisms that depend on it as well.

These species include red snapper and grouper.

5.       Future Ocean pH Levels

We know CO2 pollution is getting worse. This also means, our ocean’s pH level will also continue to decrease (meaning more acidic).

Remember that pteropod shell we showed you dissolving?

That was in seawater with a pH level of 7.8.

As you can see above, scientists predict our ocean will reach a pH level of 7.8 in less than a century.
co2 and ph levels in ocean graph diagram-Consequences to Ocean Acidification - Dolphinaris in Cancun

What can you do to stop ocean acidification?

It would be nearly impossible to stop ocean acidification.

But what we can do is, slow it down. This will give our ocean a chance to acclimate to the new pH level.

So how we slow down ocean acidification?

By weening ourselves off fossil fuels.

This means using…

  • Solar panels like Tesla’s new shingle-shaped solar roofs.
  • Public transportation that consolidates travelers into one vehicle.
  • Supporting green companies and organizations
  • Attempting to shrink your carbon footprint

How big is your carbon footprint? Find out with this cool carbon footprint calculator.

Summary:

  1. Burning fossil fuels leads to climate change.
  2. Climate change leads to higher levels of CO2 pollution in our ocean.
  3. A higher ocean pH level leads to ocean acidification.
  4. Ocean acidification prevents shellfish and coral reefs from forming shells.
  5. In the end, our ocean suffers because everything is connected ecologically.

tarzania-zipline - crazy things to do in cancun

Having some Corona’s or Margaritas under the sun is fun. But there’s one obvious problem with that.

Drinking will only lead to memory loss. You want to be able to remember the crazy things you do in Cancun, right?

If you really want the craziest things to do in Cancun you need to think about outdoor extreme activities.

Why?

There are two main reasons for this.

  1. Cancun has outdoor extreme activities you can’t find elsewhere in the world—and at very affordable prices as well.
  2. These are the memories that will last your lifetime. (isn’t that what vacations are all about?)

On board with me so far?

Good.

Now let’s examine the 10 Craziest Things to do in Cancun.

1.      Bungee Swing (Click here for tour details)

Can you do it? Can you override your brain’s self-protection system and simply jump off the ledge?

Not everyone can. They think they can…until they look down. Before they know it, it’s been a few seconds. Now your self-protection system is firmly in control.

It’s saying “ummm…yeah…we’re not doing that. That’s a long way down, and we’re just safer up here, so we’ll pass on this. Thank you anyways though.”

But if you are able to make the jump…wow! What a rush!

What is the Bongo Tour? An Epic 6-Hour Cancun Party Bus!

What is the Bongo Tour? An Epic 6-Hour Cancun Party Bus!

what is the bongo tour logo

People come to Cancun for two reasons:

  1. To enjoy the spectacular beaches at the Hotel Zone
  2. Have an epic time partying

What’s the best way to party in Cancun?

The Bongo Tour!

Why?

Because the Bongo Tour is a can’t-miss 6-hour party bus tour through Cancun’s best bars.

What do you get with the Bongo Tour?

  • As Many Domestic Drinks As You Desire
  • Never Wait in Line with Priority Bar Service
  • Always Have a Spot to Sit in with Reserved Seating

Think about that for a moment…

What’s the worst part of going to a bar?

  1. You never know just how much money you will spend.

(And let’s face it. You tend to spend more liberally as the night goes on. Next day you’re left wondering…where did all my money go?)

  1. Is there anything more awkward than trying to catch a bar-tender’s attention?

There’s nothing worse than feeling you’re being neglected.

  1. Don’t you just hate when there’s absolutely nowhere to sit?

Even if you’re lucky enough to find a seat, you don’t want to get up, for fear of losing it.

With the Bongo Tour, you don’t have to stress about ANY of that!

With the Bongo Tour you…

  • Save money by knowing just how much you’ll spend for the WHOLE night of drinking.
  • Get treated like the most important person in the room…always.
  • Always have a spot (that you won’t have to linger over to protect.)

Where Does the Bongo Tour Party Bus Take You?

Cancun is an awesome town to go drinking. But there’s just one problem. Most people don’t know where to go! Worse yet…they don’t know how to get there.

And honestly…do you really want to be checking Google Maps & Trip Advisor late at night while drunk?

That’s part of the beauty of going on a Bongo Tour. They take you to all the drinking hotspots in the Hotel Zone.

Here’s where the Bongo Tour Party Bus takes you…
