Paris Climate Agreement To Produce Six Million Tons Of Fish Annually
By this time most of us, if not all, know about global warming and its effect on our planet. A deal between countries has been struck and this agreement may be a game changer.
Twelve months ago, on December 12, 2015, world leaders reached an agreement which hold each country accountable for the amount of carbon footprint each country leaves. The main aim of the Paris Agreement is to reduce global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
This consensus could not have come at a better time. Global warming is surely and slowly melting our polar ice caps and the rise in water temperatures across our planet's oceans pose a danger to not only to us but the planet as a whole. Global warming and rising water levels pose a threat of swallowing low-lying lands and changing the planetary ecosystem as a whole.
According to David Sims, a professor and researcher at Marine Biology Association, Plymouth, there is substantial evidence that marine fish populations and communities have been greatly impacted by climate change.
Recent research using computer models showed that potential fish catches could increase by more than three metric million tons a year for every degree Celsius decrease in global warming as opposed to today's global fish catch of 109 million metric tons.
Thomas Frölicher, a senior scientist at ETH Zurich and an investigator at the Nippon Foundation-Nereus Program stated that temperature and oxygen concentration have a direct relationship to carbon emissions and atmospheric warming.
Studies have revealed that at 1.5 C warming, there is a projected 40 per cent increase in fisheries around the Indo-Pacific area. Significant increase in the number of fishes may hopefully fill the demand for food supply and hopefully be sustainable for future generations. The dangers of dwindling food source may be directly addressed with the drop in global warming.
