193 nations urge action to protect oceans, with US protest 10.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The 193 UN member nations have issued an urgent call for action to reverse the decline in the health and productivity of the worlds oceans, with the United States backing the action plan but rejecting its support for the Paris agreement to tackle climate change. Ministers and diplomats yesterday burst into applause as the final document was gavelled to approval by consensus at the end of the first-ever UN conference on oceans. It recognises the critical importance of the worlds seas to the future of the planet: Covering three-quarter of the Earth, they supply nearly half the oxygen that we breathe, absorb over a quarter of the carbon dioxide we produce, provide food, and play key roles in water cycles and the climate system. The government leaders called on people and organisations everywhere to take action to reverse the threats from plastic garbage, illegal and excessive fishing, rising sea levels that could wipe out small islands, and increasing acidity of ocean water that is killing marine ...

First UN talks to save oceans kick off tomorrow 4.6.2017 deccanherald.com
World leaders convene at UN headquarters next week for the first major bid to solve the toughest problems facing our oceans, from coral bleaching to plastic pollution, overfishing and rising seas due to climate change. The Ocean Conference in New York June 5-9 attempts to rally nations big and small to make meaningful changes to preserve what is arguably the Earths most important resource, experts say. US President Donald Trumps recent decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord is anticipated to be a hot topic at the talks, which no high-ranking US officials are expected to attend. But despite Trumps decision Thursday to end US participation in the Paris deal, which drew worldwide condemnation, experts at the Pew Charitable Trust said the United States has been a part of crafting a broad "call to action," and is expected to sign it. "We are committed to halting and reversing the decline in the health and productivity of our ocean," says the three-page document, which also expresses alarm at the ...
