The Pacific Ocean is in Trouble

Posted by on Friday, April 29, 2016

The Pacific Ocean is in trouble. Due to Human activity oxygen levels in the Pacific is diminishing and within 20 years parts of the Pacific Ocean to essentially suffocate.

Warmer water cannot hold as much oxygen as colder water. This is already beginning to disrupt marine ecosystems at sea level. However as climate change continues to evolve deep sea creatures will also be left without enough oxygen to survive.

The Pacific Ocean is the largest of the Earth's oceanic divisions. It extends from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the Southern Ocean in the south and is bounded by Asia and Australia in the west and the Americas in the east.
