Scientists and climate campaigners including Gillian Anderson, Joanna Lumley and Stephen Fry urge the government to take a leading role in forging a strong global treaty to conserve marine life
Last week, climate strikers young and old came out in force calling upon the government to act with greater urgency in tackling the global climate emergency.
Their demands should be emboldened by the stark findings of the special report on the ocean and cryosphere in a changing climate, released on Wednesday by the International Panel on Climate Change. The report highlights the intimate connection between our climate, our oceans and our very existence. It presents irrefutable scientific evidence that our warming climate is placing marine and frozen areas of our planet in grave danger, with some changes happening at a much larger scale and faster rate than previously predicted.
