Say:

{Start animation} Much of it goes into the ocean. Now we are looking at a video that shows how the ocean naturally absorbs much of that rampant CO2. As the ocean absorbs this excess CO2, it reacts with sea water, changing the ocean’s chemistry. This process is called ocean acidification.

How do we know this is happening?

Notes and Rationale:

The narrative explains the mechanism of OA in general terms (changing the chemistry) but refrains from outlining the details of the chemical process and the pH scale.
