Marine Mammals: Early Warning For World Climate Survival

CLIMATE HOUR – Marine mammals are the planet’s canary in a coalmine. For as the ocean goes, so goes the land and all that dwell upon it. Climate change is causing the world’s oceans to become warmer and more acidic, while a constant stream of petrochemicals and microplastics turn then into a toxic wasteland. The study and preservation of marine mammals can provide an early warning system that helps us understand the long term impacts of climate and waste on land, and the future of land mammals.
