The ocean reduces its consumption of CO2


According to one study, the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestered by the oceans is declining significantly.

Researchers believe that there is a reduced ability of oceans to sequester atmospheric carbon, due to global warming. It would appear that the disturbance of the ocean sequestration is due to rising temperatures. Kitack Lee of the University of Science and Technology Pohang (South Korea) claimed that "the increase in atmospheric temperature due to climate change can profoundly influence ocean sequestration, and thus reduce the consumption of CO2 by the oceans.
