Our $2 Trillion Ocean-Dependent Economy Is At Risk From Climate Change$2 trillion of the global economy is directly or indirectly dependent upon our oceans. In addition to more obvious industries like shipping and fishing, other like pharmaceuticals, research, energy, tourism, and more also depend on the health of our oceans.
NASA satellites are revealing the extent climate change is affecting the world’s oceans, including sea levels, water temperature, thinning ice shelves, oxygen levels, salinity, ocean winds, weather patterns, and much more. Observations from these satellites can help to inform decisions that affect greenhouse gases and other aspects of climate change.
