    “The oceans are extremely important, not only to our climate, but to our health and our global ecosystems…. For climate change, they play a central role. About a quarter of carbon emissions that we emit every year end up in the ocean.”

    -Yassir Eddebar, PhD candidate, CMBC, Scripps Institution of Oceanography

    This year’s United Nations Conference of the Parties in Paris will write a treaty to address climate change. It’s taken decades to get here. UCSD has sent several graduate students to the conference to learn about and participate in the global system of science policy.

    Read more about their work this week in their blog on the San Diego Union Tribune.
