June 8th is World Oceans Day, a global day of ocean celebration and collaboration for a better world.
Scientists tell us that our oceans are reaching their capacity as “carbon sinks.” As they absorb the greenhouse gases that we are creating, our oceans are heating up and becoming more acidic, threatening the health of all living things….
Grab the kids in your life, and celebrate the oceans. Check out some of the resources at the World Oceans Day site as well as those at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. Take some time to talk about the Paris Climate Agreement and the historic nature of the commitments made by all governments of the world to acknowledge and to begin in earnest to repair the damages that we are inflicting on our mother earth. Discuss as well, the US administration’s decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement and the fact that this decision is not the will nor the wishes of the majority of the American people. Share the WeAreStillin campaign with them. Together we are building climate hope.
