Tiny marine organisms called phytoplankton take in carbon to make the nutrition they need through a process called photosynthesis. The phytoplankton are eaten by larger marine life.  

Marine life cannot survive without carbon, but high levels of carbon disolved in ocean waters are harmful to marine organisms such as algae, mollusks and corals.

Answer the next question on the basis of the information from the video:

How do the carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere affect the corals life in the ocean?
