Ocean covers at least 70% of the earth's planet and is the major water platform present in the world. It also regulates the global temperature and is the home for numerous living thing species.
Climate change is altering the ocean in different ways, the most remarkable ones are: the rise in the temperature (increasing 0.13 Fahrenheit per decade according to NatGio and causing more natural disasters), the rise in the sea level (causing glaciers melting and unexpected flooding in coastal areas) and lose on the ocean chemical balance (causing some species to be prematurely dead or having deformations on the skeleton).
All of the previous has been done due to human footprint, and it is pretty important that we can start to make something different to ensure a planet for our future generations. The planet needs all of us.
