Seaweed farming in danger because of Trump's climate decision

You heard us right. According to global scientists far more than seaweed farmers are in danger of their way of live. All are.

A report released the same day the United States announced its decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change highlights new funding opportunities for marine conservation driven by private philanthropy, in combination with development banks and aid agencies.

Seaweed Farming

We found the story - which is of course very very scary - on Devex - a generally cool site with all kinds of news. This is not a fishing story, mind you. It's a conservation and global governance issue more than anything. We understand that the oceans are all over the planet. If you've ever been on a boat with any of us you would know we pick up far more garbage than we leave in the water. You should try it sometimes :)

From the story:

The report, commissioned by the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, provides an overview of recent increases in funding for marine conservation — but suggests that NGOs working on the issue need to develop projects with a more attractive risk and return profile for investors.
