Mankind has not yet crossed this boundary yet, but the effects are visible, and we must take note of our impact. The root cause is once again the carbon dioxide gas that we emit as a result of our dependence on fossil fuels for our energy requirements and for many other industrial ctivities, like cement production. Roughly one fourth of this gets absorbed by the ocean water leading to the formation of Carbonic Acid (H2CO3) that leads to this effect.
