Canada has the longest coastline of any country. Issues facing coastal waters should be included in election discussion and debates. Oceans provide food, recreation and economic and cultural opportunities that face multiple threats, including pollution, climate change and ocean acidification. Protecting our oceans benefits all Canadians. The air we breathe and climate stability are strongly linked to ocean health.Climate change is affecting oceans. Federal action to meet commitments to protect the oceans is more important than ever as communities are forced to adapt to sea-level rise, ocean acidification and changes in seasonal weather.Canada is failing to meet its protection commitments. Only one per cent of Canada’s marine area is protected, far from the 10 per cent promised by 2020 (UN Convention on Biological Diversity).

CHANGE

Gimme change says the earth.
Give me change says the Ocean,
Give us change say the people.

It’s not what’s in your pocket,                                                                                                                                                                                                   
Or how to fly a rocket,
It’s all around you.

OCEANS ON EARTH ARE TURNING ACIDIC

Biggest extinction known on Earth result of oceans turned acid by CO2, the main gas driving human-caused climate change.

  Scientists have identified the lethal agency that caused the single most catastrophic event in the history of life on Earth.

The mass extinction at the boundary of the Permian and Triassic eras 252 million years ago was caused by the acidification of the world’s oceans, as a consequence of an increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide.

The Permian Extinction – sometimes called “the Great Dying” – seemed to all but obliterate life in the oceans, and perhaps on land. More than 90% of all species disappeared, more than 80% of all genera, and more than 50% of all marine families were extinguished in one prolonged calamity.

All life on Earth today has descended from the few survivors of this far-off episode. Palaeontologists, geologists, climate scientists and astronomers have all speculated on the probable cause.

The latest and most confident analysis is based on a new study of ancient marine sediments and delivers obvious parallels with processes that are – for different reasons − occurring again today.

Scientific Survey

Report: Global coral reef survey highlights climate threat

There has been recent evidence that this present change in the pH of ocean waters (pH is a measure of its acidity) as a consequence of fossil fuel combustion in the last two centuries has already disturbed the behaviour of some fish species, threatened to affect oyster fisheries and coral reefs, and even to alter whole ocean ecosystems. – See more at: http://www.rtcc.org/2015/04/18/ocean-acidification-triggered-mass-extinctions-252-million-years-ago/#.dpuf
