A tribute to the world's oceans: why we couldn't survive without them
Description: Water covers about 71 percent of the planet's surface. This means that it's not only home to much of life on earth, but also closely involved in many functions that provide a stable environment for life to thrive. For example, oceans are an integral part of our weather and climate patterns. It absorbs, stores and redistributes heat through currents and they play a critical role in maintaining stable climates. They are also the largest absorbers of carbon dioxide (CO2), one of the greenhouse gasses that actively contribute to global warming. [Source: Myanmar Times]
