There is a big United Nations meeting that is going to happen in New York City soon that some researchers say will dictate the long term survival of the Ocean. The meeting has been in the works for years with countries expected to sign on to a pact that will manage the high seas over a number of issues from water quality to fisheries. 

Scientists have published on the way the high seas (ocean areas that are not governed by any country) have been treated in the past and have been outspoken on the need to better protect them. 

Some researchers say the oceans will be in trouble if countries do not sign on to protect the high seas at this meeting. 

Do you think that is true? Do you think Accords such as the Paris Climate Change Accord will help reduce climate change impact?

Let me know in the Facebook Group.
