I've read a lot of women powering articles. I've heard about them on the news. It's a topic that might not ever die out. Why? Because it's a topic that changes as the decades go on.

Carbon emission is one of the biggest contributors to environmental impacts. Not only is it polluting our land and air but also our water, especially the ocean.

When carbon dioxide touches the surface of the ocean it dissolves and forms carbon acids that eventually decrease the pH level in the Ocean which will affect diverse marine livelihoods.
