80% of all life on Earth lives underwater
Let’s explore how Earth Day came to be and how OceanBlue remains committed to people and the planet.
Our planet’s biodiversity is mostly below sea level. So far, scientists have identified more than 200,000 marine species, and, according to National Geographic Magazine, suspect that there are millions more that have yet to be documented.
Water bodies cover 71% of our planet, and land offers only 4% of the living space. - Until recent decades, questions about the Earth’s sustainability were not being asked. People viewed the oceans as inexhaustible resources so huge that they could not be depleted or seriously polluted. This view has shifted.
Global Agreements that Benefit the Earth
The first Earth Day was April 22, 1970 - U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson came up with the idea of Earth Day. He chose the day as a national teach-in because it was convenient for college students, falling between spring break and final exams. The effort was supported by politicians from both the Republican and Democratic parties. Find out what you don’t know about Earth Day here.
The Paris Agreement was signed on Earth Day in 2016. The Paris Climate Change Agreement brought 174 countries and the EU together at the UN in New York City to create a climate change mitigation, adaptation, and Finance framework. Other global agreements, such as COP21, have established specific goals, such as limiting global warming below two degrees Celsius.
