From regulating our weather to absorbing our carbon emissions, oceans play a central role in the global climate story, but often go unrecognized in the telling of this story. This panel will look at different ways oceans and coasts fit into the climate discussion this year, including the environmental justice story unfolding on coastlines near petrochemical refineries, the push this year for a global agreement on oceans and the role oceans can play in reducing carbon emissions.
