🌊🌊🌊Why should we care about the Ocean? 🌊🌊🌊 ~The air we breathe: The ocean produces over half of the world's oxygen and absorbs 50 times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere.
~Climate regulation: Covering 70 percent of the Earth's surface, the ocean transports heat from the equator to the poles, regulating our climate and weather patterns.
~Transportation: Seventy-six percent of all U.S. trade involves some form of marine transportation.
~Recreation: From fishing to boating to kayaking and whale watching, the ocean provides us with many unique activities.
~Economic benefits: The U.S. ocean economy produces $282 billion in goods and services and ocean-dependant businesses employ almost three million people.
~Food: The ocean provides more than just seafood; ingredients from the sea are found in suprising foods such as peanut butter and soymilk. ~
Medicine: Many medicinal products come from the ocean, including ingredients that help fight cancer, athritis, Alzheimer's disease, and heart disease. Don't forget to care about the ocean, recycling is a great way how to do it, picking up one thing at a time when attending beach is not hard either, I think what's important is to do something to help reduce the amount of trash that is currently in the Pacific Ocean known as the Garbage island - https://youtu.be/1qT-rOXB6NI - here will be a video to be aware of this problem. ~ Together we can be the change by simple act of caring 🌊 ~
