The burden on ocean ecosystems discussed in The Conversation
The so called “Blue Acceleration” will have significant consequences for life on the blue planet, writes SU researcher Robert Blasiak in a new article in the digital magazine The Conversation.
The article “Blue Acceleration: our dash for ocean resources mirrors what we’ve already done to the land” is published on 24 January and written by Robert Blasiak, researcher at Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University.
He writes: “The ocean was once thought – even among prominent scientists – to be too vast to be changed by human activity. That view has been replaced by the uncomfortable recognition that not only can humans change the ocean, but also that the current trajectory of human demands on the ocean simply isn’t sustainable.”
