The oceans are acidifying. What does that mean for us? (video)

Climate change has a less well-known but no less dangerous sibling: ocean acidification. Excess carbon in the atmosphere is absorbed into the ocean, where it reacts with seawater to form an acid. Acidified water eats away at the hard body parts of animals like coral, bivalves and plankton. In this video, Sarah Cooley, an expert on ocean acidification, explains what this unsettling phenomenon means for marine creatures and for us.
