Dissolving Nemo, or Spongebob Nopants? Ocean acidification rate is unprecedented, because you’re not buying global warming so maybe this scary-sounding stuff will convince you instead:

The oceans act like a sponge to draw down excess carbon dioxide from the air; the gas reacts with seawater to form carbonic acid, which over time is neutralized by fossil carbonate shells on the seafloor.
