Our planet is getting warmer nowadays faster than any other time in recorded history. The result of this global warming is climate change!
The main cause of climate change is the burning of fossil fuels, such as oil, coal and natural gas, which release greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. High temperatures are changing weather patterns and disrupting nature’s normal balance. This poses many risks for both people and our oceans.
The ocean is a key element of the global climate balance. It is the main regulator of life on the planet. The ocean produces our food, it contains 30% of the dioxide the plant produces while it creates 50% of the oxygen we breathe.
However, the Ocean is under constant threats: marine pollution, overfishing, acidification of sea masses, destruction of ecosystems, overheating, and increase in average sea level. Today’s challenges are multiplying, endangering not only ecosystems but also human survival itself.
Facing climate change concerns us all.
Without the Ocean, global greenhouse gas emissions would have already “suffocated” the planet.
Let’s protect him!
