Coral bleaching is a phenomenon where corals release symbiotic algae living in their tissues due to stress caused by changes in light, temperature or nutrients. This results in the corals turning completely white.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report Is Out and Here’s What We Learned From It
We’ve seen disasters destroy towns and animal populations vanish because of the effects of climate change—and the worse is, this is only the beginning. For many years, we’ve watched as the earth’s temperature continues to rise causing the ice caps…
The Getting to Zero Coalition will lead the push for shipping’s decarbonization with the mutual goal of having commercially viable zero emission vessels operating along deep sea trade routes by 2030.

Global sea levels are rising, and this possible catastrophic reality can be attributed to two rather major factors, and with many people in the world living within coastal towns and communities, the impact of these rising sea levels cannot be ignored.
Climate change has had a startling effect on the rising temperatures of the oceans. Scientists predict that water temperatures will hit 1.4 – 5.8◦c by the end of the century. This change in the weather and ocean temperature is having a fundamental effect on the marine life that depends on it.
New scientific research has found a strong correlation between the rising temperature of our seas and the astounding effect this is having on fish migration. In accordance with these new findings, it has become apparent that fish which normally thrive in the tropics are quickly migrating in an effort to discover cooler seas.
Replacing plastic with a non-fossil material is a clear trend, not least in the packaging industry. Switching from fossil plastic to an alternative material such as paperboard reduces companies’ climate impact. Changing an established infrastructure takes time, though, especially if it means that the packaging must be redesigned, the packing equipment modified or replaced, and the distribution from manufacturer to consumer is affected.
