Climate Disruption is the Top Threat to Our Ocean
Together we can advance new solutions to stabilize the climate and restore the ocean
Our Strategy — Reduce, Remove, Repair, Reach
Enormous greenhouse gas pollution is disrupting the climate and driving dangerous ocean overheating and acidification—devastating marine life and diminishing the ocean’s ability to support humanity. Our four-part strategy directly addresses the causes and impacts of climate disruption:
Maximize low-carbon food, energy and transportation from the ocean
Engage the size and power of the ocean to draw down and safely store carbon pollution
Develop interventions to avoid catastrophic loss of critical marine ecosystems while we rebalance global carbon cycles
Build a global community to innovate and develop ocean-climate solutions
Organized by Ocean Visions, prominent scientists from around the world are signing an open letter highlighting the need to prioritize ocean-based carbon dioxide removal research to help improve ocean health and restore the climate.
Join Ocean Visions and co-host Sabin Center for Climate Change Law on September 22 during Climate Week NYC for an overview of what we know, and don't yet know, about ocean-based CDR and what we need to do to get actionable information.
With support from Ocean Visions, Sabin Center for Climate Change Law published draft model legislation to facilitate and accelerate ocean-based carbon dioxide removal research.
Statement: Department of Commerce, NOAA, and Biden-Harris Administration Invest in Ocean-Based Climate Solutions Research
The U.S. Department of Commerce and NOAA have announced $24 million for projects that will expand the government’s potential tools to confront the climate crisis by researching ocean-based carbon dioxide removal strategies, as part of President Biden’s Investing in America agenda.
More Than 200 Scientists Call for Accelerated and Expanded Ocean-Based Carbon Dioxide Removal Research
More than 200 prominent scientists from around the world released an open letter calling for accelerated and expanded ocean-based carbon dioxide removal research to confront the ocean and climate crises
