This Marine Biologist Has a Message for Climate Change Deniers: 'Get Over It'
“We must take care of the ocean. We must take care of the natural world from the skies above to the depths below,” Earle tells TIME following a panel at the Explorers Club in New York City. “We must take care of the living earth as if our lives depend on it. Because they do.”
Oceans play a key role dictating the planet’s climate and also act as an indicator of global warming.
Ocean water continues to absorb heat, and has reached new temperatures heights in the last half century. Sea levels have also risen in the same time period and are expected to spike dramatically, threatening coastal cities in the coming decades without action to slow them.
And finally, climate change has shifted ocean acidity levels affecting marine species.
