Carbon dioxide, climate change, and ocean acidification

Chapter 13: Carbon dioxide, Climate Change, and Ocean Acidification A natural blanket of greenhouse gases surrounds the Earth and has made it far more livable than it would be otherwise. The average surface temperature of the planet is a reasonably comforable 60° F rather than the 0° F it would be without our unique atmosphere. […]
