Global warming is a great threat to our environment. The main reason for global warming is green house gases. Thus our entire ecosystem gets affected especially the coral life system . The increasing temperature in the ocean waters creates an imbalance and thus the coral reefs are affected. Ocean acidification occurs and their maintenance gets severely affected. increase in water temperature creates ph differences that has severe impacts on coral life system. Coral reef are a great support for many ocean plants and fishes. They also help to avoid erosion of shores. Thus global warming which man has created should be reduced for the existence of entire ecosystems in the universe .
