What happens to the ocean when coral dies?

The ocean can withstand only so much Carbon Dioxide, it is the largest abosrber of CO2 on the planet, but it is reaching its limit.

When the coral is gone, there will be more calcium in the water and more mass extinctions. Nothing good comes from the loss of coral reefs and earth has reached its breaking point. In a few years, there will be no coral left, it will have died off along with the unique species that depend on it.

What can be done to stop it?
