Yesterday during a Westminster Hall debate on Marine Protected Areas, I spoke about the decline of seagrass (the UK has lost nearly half of our seagrass beds since the 1930s) and its importance as a potential nature-based solution in our response to climate change.

Marine Protected Areas have huge carbon storage potential but are disappearing as a result of fishing, sewage, and boat anchoring.

Another destructive factor, as I point out in the clip below, is offshore oil and gas sites. Labour has been demanding no new licences are granted for oil & gas extraction projects, yet the Government appears set to go ahead with plans for the largest oil site in the UK – Rosebank.

The environmental consequences could well be catastrophic.
