Test: September 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 10

Consider the following statements.

  1. More than half of the total amount of oxygen in the earth’s atmosphere is created by creatures in the ocean.
  2. Territorial waters as defined by UNCLOS make up more than half of the surface of the Earth.
  3. Oceans store more carbon dioxide than what’s currently found in the earth’s atmosphere.

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: September 2023 Weekly Current Affair - 2 - Question 10
  • Fishing, shipping, tourism and ocean protection are currently controlled by around 20 organizations. However, their regulations only apply to a distance of 200 nautical miles (370 kilometers) from the coast. Farther out, international waters start, and individual states don’t have any power or say.
  • Although the high seas make up more than half of the surface of the Earth and 61% of all oceans, only 1% of international waters are under protection.
  • The ocean isn’t just important for beach tourists and fishers. We also need it in order to generate sustainable wave and tidal energy, as well as for the production of commodities and even medicine.
  • Some agents used to fight leukemia, for instance, are derived from a shallow water sponge called Tectitethya crypta, which can be found in the waters of the Caribbean. The poison of the fish-eating sea snail Conus magus is being used to develop an effective painkiller.
  • More than half of the total amount of oxygen in our atmosphere is created by creatures in the ocean. At the same time, oceans store 50 times more carbon dioxide than what’s currently found in our atmosphere. The warmer the ocean gets, the less CO2 it can store. It’s a vicious cycle: the warmer it gets, the less our oceans can protect the planet from even more extreme weather events.
  • If temperatures keep increasing at their current speed, scientists believe many shellfish such as mussels and snails will not survive. That’s due to ocean acidification: if the CO2 content in the seawater increases, the PH level in the water changes. The increasing acidity hampers the creation of the chalky shells of the animals. This throws entire biospheres off-balance, and could threaten entire economic sectors, such as the breeding of oysters and mussels.
