The talk is about climate change, and the beautiful white sandy beaches, coconut palm trees and brilliant blue ocean surfs of the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific Ocean contributes majorly in regulating the earth’s temperature driving global weather patterns and provides half the world’s oxygen. In contrasting reality, nuclear testing programs, deforestation and mining has devasted the natural setting of the Pacific Ocean. Now climate change has become the most significant threat for the ocean. Economic value and strategic interests in the region coupled with politics, are the reasons for these ongoing destruction. Katerina Teaiawa shares the idea of how we can move towards a cleaner and fairer future.
