The time to act is now
"The ocean covers more than 70 percent of the globe’s surface, so if we want to turn climate change around, we need to look to the ocean. The ocean is our planetary life support system and if we don’t understand it and take care of it, the future of our ocean planet could be compromised to the detriment of mankind and all living creatures."
