Climate and Marine Animals

Overwhelming international scientific consensus confirms that human activities are disturbing Earth's climate. Science has demonstrated that atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) has increased by 35% (currently ~ 387ppm) and that Earth, as a whole, has warmed about 1.5 degrees F in the past century alone. Effects from climate disruption are already threatening Marine animals and are expected to worsen.
