The article reports on the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Topics include the report's findings on sea level rise and the decrease in the ocean's pH levels, the impact of the anthropogenic growth of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and the need to develop marine renewable resources of energy. It also discusses the "Blue Growth" strategy to be implemented by the Ocean Energy Forum of the European Commission.
