The benefits of reducing greenhouse gas emissions

greenhouse gas emissions

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is crucial to mitigating the impacts of climate change on the world's oceans. The ocean absorbs about 25% of the carbon dioxide emissions from human activities, resulting in ocean acidification and warming that can harm marine life and ecosystems. By reducing greenhouse gas emissions, we can help to slow down the rate of ocean acidification and warming, protecting marine ecosystems and biodiversity. Additionally, reducing greenhouse gas emissions can also have co-benefits for human health, such as reducing air pollution from burning fossil fuels. Implementing policies and practices that promote the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and preserve the health and resilience of the ocean for future generations.
