Dr. Edward Hind-Ozan shared a great article that really got our Speak Up For Blue Group thinking about the prioritization of finding Ocean Solutions. The article discusses how there seems to be a heavy push in funding and policy for plastic pollution, but little support for Climate Change, which has been deemed a number one priority for many governments.
Plastic pollution is an interesting issue to tackle. It's tangible; the solutions are measurable; and people can get behind the idea of plastic bans for straws, water bottles, and plastic bags. However, Climate Change is a harder thing to tackle and it costs a lot of money.
Do you think plastic pollution is the low hanging fruit?
