Words can be powerful, but they can also be empty of meaning. When it comes to the global climate crisis, most of us are dedicated to holding politicians to account on their policies – and that they take on board what is now the obvious role the climate change has in so many global crises. Up until the present time we have been accepting of silence, indifference or misinformation on this vital issue. Each one of us needs to get organised and to be heard in order to protect our marine environment. Why the concern?
Sadly, this week, a fifth effort to pass a global agreement to protect the world’s oceans and marine life has failed in New York. UN Ocean Treaty talks failed to reach agreement on a Treaty which can deliver Ocean Sanctuaries across 30% of the oceans by 2030.
