I think as a species we're making a lot of progress on fixing the Earth's atmosphere however we seem to be destroying the oceans and because they are not as visible to us we tend to ignore the damage that we're doing. So I decided to start this thread to discuss what we can do to fix the Earth's oceans. What technologies have you read about that can have an impact on preserving the Earth's oceans?

I worry because I've read things like this all too often. The only technology I could think of that I have seen in the news recently was a system developed by the Navy to scoop carbon from the ocean and turn it into fuel for planes on aircraft carriers but I don't have a reference right now. Please post articles that could help save the Earth's oceans here or that discusses the future of the Earth's oceans.

Here is a great article by MIT on the problem of ocean acidification. Now what strategies are out there to tackle it? Even extreme ones like geoengineering. I'm relying on the hive mind to innovate!

Here is the link to the technology for extracting fuels from ocean water:

I remember it coming from a more reputable source as well but this was all I could find on short notice. It is a bit dated so apologies for that

What is that?

Apparently the geoengineering schemes on the table are too large scale to be realistic, but perhaps we could use the jobs and or automate the work? The scale is on the order of the global coal industry to decrease the pH of the upper ocean
