Happy World Ocean(s) Day

June 8 is World Oceans Day, designed to remind everyone of the major role the oceans have in everyday life and to celebrate together the beauty, wealth and promise of the ocean.  This year’s theme is “Healthy oceans, healthy planet”, with special emphasis on stopping plastic pollution.  At the request of the ICPO sponsor – the China State Oceanic Administration, I put together a short video about once aspect of the ocean’s role in climate and the importance of the work of CLIVAR scientists around the world.  Happy World Ocean(s) Day to you all!
