The ocean plays a central role in regulating the Earth’s climate. Atmospheric warming is leading to the melting of inland glaciers and ice, causing rising sea levels with significant impacts on shorelines. CO2 emissions are also making the ocean more acidic. Our youngest participants are going to try to make the present generation aware of this and find few solutions we could share with everyone to make the earth a better place to live on.
The ocean plays a central role in regulating the Earth’s climate. Atmospheric warming is leading to the melting of inland glaciers and ice, causing rising sea levels with significant impacts on shorelines & human settlements. CO2 emissions are also making the ocean more acidic, making many marine species and ecosystems increasingly vulnerable.
Oceans are a global force of nature that form the foundation of the blue planet on which we live. They cover 71% of our planet’s surface and make up 95% of all the space available to life. They are a life-support system for Earth and a global commons that provide us with free goods and services, from the food we eat to the oxygen we breathe.
The Arctic, Africa, small islands and Asian megadeltas and Australia are regions that are likely to be especially affected by future climate change. Africa is one of the most vulnerable continents to climate variability and change because of multiple existing stresses and low adaptive capacity.
Protect the oceans. Oceans also absorb large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which helps to keep our climate stable. But many are overfished, used for oil and gas drilling, or threatened by deep sea mining. Protecting oceans and the life in them is ultimately a way to protect ourselves from climate change.
The Whale pump
The world's largest animals are unusually good at taking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.
Whales are not only valuable in death. The tides of excrement that these mammals produce are also surprisingly relevant to the climate
The beauty of restoring whale populations is that there is plenty of space in the ocean – space once filled with whales

Global warming is the long-term heating of Earth's climate system observed since the pre-industrial period due to human activities, primarily fossil fuel burning, which increases heat-trapping greenhouse gas levels in Earth's atmosphere.
