Center for American Progress’ John Podesta on the Failure to Protect Antarctica’s Southern Ocean

Washington, D.C.–(ENEWSPF)–November 1, 2013.  Following the conclusion of the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources meeting in Hobart, Australia, where a proposal to create the world’s largest marine sanctuary in Antarctica’s Southern Ocean failed for the third time, Center for American Progress Chair John Podesta released the following statement:

The continent of Antarctica proves that the global community is capable of putting science ahead of exploitation and managing a global commons for the good of all humanity. Unfortunately, a few nations have seen fit to engage in a new Cold War over Antarctic marine protected areas, meaning those universally accepted principals that prioritize conservation and collaboration will senselessly continue to stop at the water’s edge.
