Hoegh-Guldberg, Ove; Northrop, Eliza; Lubchenco, Jane (2019): The ocean is key to achieving climate and societal goals. In: Science 365 (6460), S. 1372–1374. DOI: 10.1126/science.aaz4390.

“The just-released Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) special report on the ocean and cryosphere in a changing climate (SROCC) (1) details the immense pressure that climate change is exerting on ocean ecosystems and portrays a disastrous future for most life in the ocean and for the billions of people who depend on it unless anthropogenic greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are slashed. […] We highlight the report’s analysis of the mitigation potential and the required research, technology, and policy developments for five ocean-based mitigation areas of action: renewable energy; shipping and transport; protection and restoration of coastal and marine ecosystems; fisheries, aquaculture, and shifting diets; and carbon storage in the seabed (see the figure).[nbsp]”
