I had a great listener question that I decided to cover on the podcast because I thought it was an important topic.
@harveyperello asked: Why do we ignore ocean solutions when fighting climate change?
It's a terrific question! The answer comes down to how the ocean is covered in media. You never hear about great ocean projects such as the ones that plant mangroves to combat climate change (mangroves absorb 50 times more carbon than trees on land), but we do hear about 1 billion trees being planted as a new government program.
There are great programs out there, we just don't hear about them. I have some thoughts on why that I share in during this episode.
