How Our Oceans Can Save the Planet
In a historic United Nations treaty, countries around the world agreed to protect ocean biodiversity by conserving 30 percent of the earth’s open oceans by 2030. Andy speaks with UN senior adviser Susan Ruffo about why the High Seas Treaty is so important, the oft-forgotten role the ocean plays in combating climate change, and how your life is intrinsically connected to the sea regardless of how far you live from the shore.
