Ocean acidification is a new problem for humans that rose recently. It has been drawing attention from people. It is getting more serious and important with the continuous carbon emission to the atmosphere. The threatens from ocean acidification are affecting multiple characters, especially organisms like marine animals and marine plants. Researches show the change in the pH will affect the lifespan and the reproduction process of marine organisms. Besides the impact on organisms, ocean acidification is also likely to impact the global climate. For places located around the tropical area, ocean acidification will bring more frequent storms and hurricanes. Focused on the problem, we want to seek solutions. However, currently, there are no direct ways to address the problem of ocean acidification. Some hypotheses have been made, such as managing the seaweed and the precipitation method, but these approaches are immature and currently inapplicable. The most practical method to slow down ocean acidification is to make agreements and regulations to directly control carbon emission. Future agreements should increase the collaboration internationally and apply the most suitable measures locally. This research aims to provide background knowledge for future studies about the ocean.
