Oceana at International Climate Change Negotiations
Oceana is once again attending the annual U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP-16) international climate change negotiations in Cancun to push for stronger climate change policies and explain the impacts of ocean acidification for marine life and society.
Marine Scientist Ellycia Harrould-Kolieb will be talking at a series of side events about ocean acidification, as well as distributing our new report “Ocean Acidification: The Untold Stories” and presenting a white paper in conjunction with the IUCN entitled “Climate change and Ocean Acidification: Synergies and Opportunities Under the UNFCCC”. Oceana will be highlighting the fact that ocean acidification can only be stopped by reducing carbon dioxide emissions and shifting to new cleaner and safer forms of alternative energy.
