A SEA OF CHANGE: Climate Change and Our Ocean


The ocean plays a key role in the global carbon cycle and is closely tied to our atmosphere. This connection makes the ocean ground zero for global climate change. It should be a central part of climate discussions. The eagerly-awaited Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC) will make it one.

What are the ways a changing climate affects our ocean? What can we expect from SROCC? And, most importantly, what policy changes would make a difference?

Join Sarah Cooley, the Director of Ocean Conservancy’s Ocean Acidification program, and George Leonard, our Chief Scientist, as they take a deeper dive.
