Summary

Our oceans are already suffering under the impacts of climate change. The 2019 Special Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on the Ocean and Cryosphere paints a troubling picture of the status and prospects of the world’s ice and oceans. The earth’s climate and the state of the oceans are interdependent. The oceans play a fundamental role in our climate system, through the uptake and redistribution of anthropogenic CO2 and heat, as well as their crucial involvement in the hydrological cycle.
