Tell your country’s climate negotiator to put oceans back in the COP 21 Climate Agreement!
Just today — on COP 21 Oceans Day — climate negotiators chose to take oceans out of the forthcoming climate agreement.
Protecting our oceans, which provide 50% of our oxygen and the majority of our water in the water cycle, and absorb 1/3 of our CO2 emissions, is CRITICAL FOR CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION AND ADAPTATION!
Please contact your negotiator (for the U.S., that is Todd Stern to whom you can send a message through firstname.lastname@example.org) to demand that the oceans and ocean protection stay in the climate agreement.
We are circulating a petition here at COP 21 as well.
