Latest issue! Climate Change and the Ocean

” … global average temperature (the famous 2°C “limit”) is not a useful indicator of the ocean’s role in either mitigation or adaptation to climate change. In large part because of the ocean, global average temperature does not reflect real temperature rises where people live, nor does it capture the myriad real impacts of climate change. Although focusing the world’s attention on global average temperature has played a role in driving intergovernmental negotiations and setting national targets, it is not enough. First and foremost, sustaining ocean health, and building resilience to climate change, must be built on local awareness and monitoring of the changing ocean and coasts coupled with local leadership and actions.”
