Human-induced changes in atmospheric carbon dioxide levels will have severe consequences for oceans, concluded a 31 May report from the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU).

The WGBU wrote the report, which was released in English on 26 July, in order to draw attention to the need to develop climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies and to contribute to the development of a European Union ocean policy.
