A belated World Oceans Day to my readers! I was so wrapped up in June 8 being a Throwback Thursday so I could post a retrospective then distressed by the death of Anthony Bourdain that I completely forgot about it being World Oceans Day. To make up for it, I'm sharing CBS News' A look at the dangers our oceans are facing ahead of World Oceans Day.*
Friday is World Oceans Day, which comes at a time our oceans face threats from plastic pollution as well as the growing effects of climate change. Gaelin Rosenwaks, a marine scientist and founder of Global Ocean Exploration, joins CBSN to discuss the dangers oceans face and how people can take small but significant steps to make a difference.Climate change, plastic pollution, and overfishing make a deadly trifecta of threats to all the world's oceans, not just the coral reefs. Here's to hoping World Oceans Day makes people more aware of their impact on the oceans.
