About 40% of the world’s living species population lives under the coast. From achromic to bright-colored creatures and from the brightest to the strangest and most dull species, the sea is home to various living creatures. You don’t want to harm their environment; here is a list of five reasons why keeping the seas clean is essential. Helps us breathe: Phytoplankton in the sea is responsible for producing over 50% of the oxygen on Earth. They absorb fifty times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere, transferring about 10 gigatonnes of atmospheric carbon into the seas yearly. Hence, seas are a primary source of oxygen vital for human life; keeping them clean means sustainable oxygen supply for us. Economic benefits: Fisheries and aquaculture approximately employ 56 million people directly and help generate employment for 660 – 820 million people. The ocean is vital to world’s economy as 9 – 12% of the global population is dependent on the sea for their livelihoods. The U.S. ocean economy produces $282 billion in goods and services and ocean-dependent businesses. Keeping the seas dirty would mean posing a threat to aquatic life, which will affect the yearly earnings from this sector. Regulates our climate: Do you know that oceans absorb a quarter of all the carbon dioxide exhaled into the atmosphere by humans? They help keep the carbon cycle in balance by acting as a carbon sink. Seas absorb over 90% of the heat caused due to global warming. The heating and cooling effects of ocean currents make world temperatures… Read More »Understanding the Importance of Keeping the Sea Clean
