The warmer the ocean gets, the more CO2 it releases. its a cycle. It may not be the greatest cycle for human civilization, the more (dissolved) CO2 the ocean releases the more acidic the ocean becomes, (more O2 and H bonding, less Carbon, leading to a more acidic chemical mix in ocean, and a higher Carbon atmospheric content) The "C" in "CO2" is Carbon. From a chemical perspective Carbon likes to bond with lots of other stuff. so once a whole bunch of carbon gets spinnin around in our atmosphere, the atmosphere changes. Measurably in our case. But still, I must pose the question, Did humans do it?

No. When CO2 is released because of warming, ocean pH increases (lower acidity) as a result of the breakdown of carbonic acid.

When CO2 dissolves in water it forms carbonic acid, lowering the pH. The oceans are absorbing more CO2 because the partial pressure of atmospheric CO2 is increasing. This is why ocean pH levels are decreasing.

Add a lot of CO2 to the atmosphere? Yes.
