A new study by scientists says that the rising temperatures of the planet will change the colour of the world’s oceans.
The national study published in the journal Nature Communications says the oceans will become bluer because the increased heat will change the mixture of tiny marine organisms in the sea with phytoplankton which will absorb and reflect light.
Phytoplankton is a microscopic marine alga.
The study says this will occur in 50% of the world’s seas by 2100.
With global warming and climate change becoming a growing problem eco-campaigner and co-ordinator of East Dorset Friends of the Earth Angela Pooley tells us how the people of Bournemouth can do their bit to help reduce the severity of this climate change.
She said: “There are lots of plans locally to try and encourage people to reduce their fossil fuels usage by using their cars less and by using renewable energy’s.”
