You don’t have to live in a beach community to love the ocean – or to grok how critical to our own survival healthy seas really are. No where else on our planet are the current impacts of global warming being felt more strongly.
That’s why I’m so happy to learn today that Oceana, the international ocean conservation group, is rolling out a new ad campaign tomorrow designed to influence policy makers arriving in Copenhagen for the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 15), December 7 -18, 2009.
Their impossible to ignore ads spotlight the need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to 350 parts per million (ppm) to avert a mass extinction of corals and likely declines in the countless marine species that depend upon them, this century. If that’s too hard to understand, let me simplify it for you after the jump.
