I edit and write the Ocean Acidification Report (globaloceanhealth.org, Our Publications), following the drastic changes to our oceans and its creatures that are occurring as a result of climate change. I will be attending COP21 in Paris this December and making sure the ocean gets its due (it provides over 50% of the oxygen on this planet!). Climate action needs to happen now! Women and children and all the rest of the world deserve to see a real US cap & trade market in place, and GLOBAL agreement on carbon reductions. We are out of time! I worked from home today to have a zero emissions (or as close as possible) day - sitting in a window for sunlight, only running a laptop.
