As most people know, 70 percent of our planet’s surface is covered in water, and therefore everything from global weather patterns to the ecosystem is affected by even the smallest change in our oceans and lakes. They contain diverse life forms, which provide us with food,  and marine plants, which supply about 50 percent of the oxygen we breathe. This goes to show that all living things on Earth rely heavily on the oceans for...

This story by Tim Hornyak was originally published on Eos as part of Covering Climate Now, a global journalism collaboration of more than 400 news outlets committed to better coverage of the climate crisis.  Indonesians say being prepared for climate-related disasters helped blunt the impact of the coronavirus pandemic – and that lessons in resilience may mitigate the effects of climate crises in the future.

The Secretary-General of the United Nations did not mince his words. “The way we are moving is a suicide,” António Guterres said in an interview on Monday.  Humanity’s survival will be “impossible,” he added, without the United States rejoining the Paris Agreement and achieving “net zero” carbon emissions by 2050, as the incoming Biden administration has pledged.
