What Is The Most Pressing Environmental Problem We Face?!?The Earth Site
We are all aware of the issue of climate change – even those who deny it – but there are other issues that will have an impact on us sooner then we might expect. According to some environmental scientists, the lack of fresh water and the acidification of the oceans go hand in hand. It is a direct effect of our fossil fuel emissions raising the CO2 in the oceans, which in turn changes the growth of marine animals and affects the Earth's growing seasons. As one scientists says, “We can live without oil. We may not be as comfortable, but we cannot live without water.”
Add your name to a petition to the Director of the US Fish and Wildlife Service to designate new Marine Protected Areas to help fight this emerging threat.
