DWS Research Institute: Oceans Climate Nexus
Within this report, we specifically focus on the oceans; their ability to capture and store carbon. Our seas, one of the largest natural tanks for CO2 emissions, are being damaged by acidification due to rising temperatures, plastic and chemical pollution, overfishing, whaling, seabed mining, resource exploitation and coastal habitat destruction.
Addressing the climate crisis in a comprehensive way requires healthy, sustainable seas. Any action related to sustainable seas ought to be embedded in a global climate policy.
