A new United Nations report on the impacts of climate change gives a bleak outlook for the world’s oceans and ice caps unless global warming is significantly curbed soon. 

U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici of Oregon introduced a House resolution Wednesday “expressing the need for immediate climate action” in response to the U.N. oceans report. The resolution calls for investing in wetland restoration and ocean renewable energy, reducing the maritime industry’s carbon footprint, and exploring the ocean’s carbon sequestration potential.
