  1. When fossil fuels are burned, it releases CO2 into the atmosphere. The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere is causing global warming and is evaporating the ocean and causing harmful changes to the ocean and the animals. The burning of fossil fuels is also dumping many chemical into the ocean. So if we can reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, it will slow all of the chemicals and the global warming that is affecting our oceans ecosystem.
