‘The ocean and us’ - BBC Earth, United Nations Ocean Conference

  • 0:07 - 0:10
    Our ocean defines our planet.
  • 0:16 - 0:18
    It sustains us,
  • 0:21 - 0:26
    and it is home to more than
    half of all life on earth today.
  • 0:33 - 0:37
    The presence of the ocean
    touches every living thing.
  • 0:39 - 0:42
    No matter where it lives.
  • 0:47 - 0:53
    The air we breathe, and
    the water we consume,
  • 0:54 - 0:57
    are ultimately linked to the seas.
  • 1:00 - 1:03
    The ocean drives our weather
  • 1:06 - 1:09
    and stabilizes our climate.
  • 1:14 - 1:18
    Nowhere is more powerful and unforgiving.
  • 1:26 - 1:30
    Yet more beautiful and endlessly fascinating.
  • 1:35 - 1:40
    Yet for too long, we have taken
    the ocean for granted.
  • 1:43 - 1:45
    Our actions have pushed species
  • 1:45 - 1:48
    to the brink.
  • 1:51 - 1:54
    And had an impact on every ocean habitat.
  • 1:55 - 1:59
    No matter how remote
  • 2:00 - 2:02
    or how deep.
  • 2:05 - 2:09
    We haven’t understood what
    the ocean does for us.
  • 2:10 - 2:15
    The effects of climate change have been
    softened by the ocean.
  • 2:16 - 2:20
    But now we are facing the consequences:
  • 2:23 - 2:28
    the seas are warming, rising,
  • 2:30 - 2:33
    and becoming more acidic.
  • 2:35 - 2:41
    It’s a sobering thought, that coral reefs
    may be lost within the next century.
  • 2:45 - 2:48
    We all need a healthy ocean,
  • 2:49 - 2:52
    so we must change our ways.
  • 2:53 - 2:55
    Together, with the right management,
  • 2:55 - 2:58
    we can re-populate the seas.
  • 3:02 - 3:05
    We can reduce marine pollution,
  • 3:06 - 3:09
    and minimize the impact of ocean acidification.
  • 3:13 - 3:20
    The ocean’s power of regeneration is
    remarkable if we just offer it the chance.
  • 3:23 - 3:25
    It’s not too late.
  • 3:27 - 3:30
    We are in reach of a whole
    new relationship with the ocean.
  • 3:31 - 3:34
    A wiser, more sustainable relationship.
  • 3:47 - 3:50
    The choice lies with us.
