Global Warming Threatens Hawaii’s Coral Reefs

COCONUT ISLAND (KHNL) – The combined stress of global warming and ocean acidification has many coral reef biologists very concerned.

Ocean acidification is a buzz word for marine biologist these days. The term refers to an increase in atmospheric gases, caused mainly by fossil fuels burning.

Marine biologists say global warming, and increased levels of carbon dioxide are killing Hawaii’s coral reefs. When reefs suffer, the ecosystems that depend on them are dangerously compromised.
