Description

HOPE FOR PEOPLE AND THE OCEAN

Can we use the ocean without using it up? The task is daunting given current trajectories in fisheries, plastics, and other pollutants, and the impacts of climate change and ocean acidification. However, new scientific insights, tools, and partnerships are providing hope that it’s not too late to transition to more-sustainable practices and policies. Dr. Lubchenco will draw on her four years as the Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere and the Administrator of the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), her two years as the first U.S. Science Envoy for the Ocean, and her decades of research around the world to summarize the importance to people of sustainable use of the ocean, and approaches that are working.

Dr. Jane Lubchenco: Distinguished Professor, Oregon State University
