THE CONNECTION IS CLEAR

We are producing more carbon than at any time in the history of the planet. That carbon spike has caused ocean acidification to rise 25% over the past 200 years, resulting in the death of 19% of the world’s reefs.

The camera is a game changer. By exposing CO2 in the world around us it allows the world to see what scientists have been talking about for decades.

The Carbon Connection

There have been 5 mass extinctions on Earth and in each there was a massive carbon spike followed by the deaths of the coral reefs.

We Are Racing Extinction Everywhere

Carbon is killing our coral reefs

Mass extinction is preceded by the die off of the coral reefs. The current carbon spike has caused ocean acidification to rise 25% over the past 200 years, resulting in the death of 19% of the world’s reefs. If nothing is done to substantially cut emissions, we could lose coral reefs as we know them within 100 years.
