Think(ing) Green Thursday
Think(ing) Green Thursday is hosted by Michelle. Please check out her wonderful posts.
I have posted before a little about the effects that our actions on land can have on animal life deep in the ocean. Carbon pollution, which means greenhouse gases that are produced by heating and cooling our houses, running our factories, driving our cars and raising our food, causes the acidification of the waters.
I am happy to say that finally, attention is being paid to this situation, brought to the attention of the Copenhagen conference on climate change, by the Center for Ocean Solutions, comprised of Monterey Bay Aquarium, Stanford University, and Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.
You may be interested in a video called Acid Test, narrated by Sigourney Weaver. View it when you have a few minutes extra time.
