Episode Description:

In his seventy-fourth episode of Expedition New England, Scott Tucker makes his annual escape from the winter chill of the North Eastern Atlantic Ocean to dive the Western Caribbean Sea in Roatan, Honduras and Belize where he dives on the second largest barrier reef system in the world known as the Mesoamerican Reef.

While exploring the magnificent marine life he also introduces the un-nerving statistic that our coral reefs could be wiped out by 2050 if the current trend continues. Scientists have determined that our coral reefs are sustaining tremendous damage due to the effects of a condition known as ocean acidification. It's all triggered by our usage of fossil fuels which raises Carbon Dioxide levels in Earths' atmosphere resulting in an increase in pH levels making it harder for coral to survive.
