The story

A report compiled by 80 scientists from 12 countries says the global impact of ocean warming has been severely underestimated.

The study launched by the International Union for Conservation of Nature suggests that climate change is pushing plankton, jellyfish, turtles and seabirds into waters previously too cold to support them.

One of the priorities should be actually to build on this report, to have a discussion around the evidence that we're showing and actually then to work to, to plan for the future with the information that we know we'll need to be able to cope when we see [a] progressive changes from a warming ocean.
