The ocean’s importance in the global climate cannot be overstated! Our often overlooked oceans are by far the largest carbon sink in the world. According to World Watch, algae, coral and ocean vegetation stores around 93% of carbon dioxide. It also absorbs an overwhelming portion of our planets excess heat.
