How does the ocean absorb carbon?

    The ocean converts carbon dioxide into carbonic acid. Unfortunately, ocean acidification is another problem in and of itself. Acid eats away at calcium carbonate, which forms the shells and exoskeletons of many marine organisms. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently released a detailed report on how climate change is affecting marine ecosystems.
