Today on Your Call: How is global warming affecting the oceans?
On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about ocean acidification. Over the last decade, the rise of carbon dioxide has changed the chemical composition of the oceans, making them less hospitable to many forms of marine life. Each hour, we dump one ton of invisible pollution into the ocean. So how can we fight ocean acidification? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
