How long will it take before the ocean is too acidic to house life?

    It would take an extremely drastic shift in the acidity of the ocean to make it completely uninhabitable. Small shifts in acidity might kill off some species, but others have a higher tolerance and many would adapt. Even if the ocean was so acidic that it could not support fish and other larger creatures, it would probably still support bacterial life. Some bacteria and algae, like the ones found in hot springs are specifically adapted to live in high-acid environments.
