The ocean produces 50% of the oxygen we breathe and absorbs 50% of the CO2 released into the atmosphere [1] It is even 70-85 % of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions which will be stored in the long run in the ocean.[2] Despite playing an instrumental role in the regulation of the climate, the ocean’s long been left aside in international negotiations.

For the first time this year, the ocean will finally have a voice during the COP 21. BLOOM welcomes this inclusion of 71% of the planet in the debate, and to facilitate journalistic production during COP21, puts its team and its international network of scientists and NGOs at the service of media.
