The ocean absorbs one-quarter of the carbon dioxide we produce by burning fossil fuels and stores 90 percent of the heat on our warming planet. But overfishing and pollution have brought the ocean to the breaking point. Its systems are starting to fail. Narrated by Sigourney Weaver, this short film about the interplay of climate change and the ocean makes the case that we need to help the ocean heal so that it can help us adapt to the mounting pressures of climate change.
Our Ocean Planet was produced by NRDC, Bloomfish Pictures, and Rock, Paper, Scissors. It premiered at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco on September 14, 2018.
