Roz and Rob at Ocean Champions ReceptionExperience how Roz and ORI's Rob Moir, PhD, enable people everywhere to meet challenges for healthy oceans and cleaner skies, challenges of climate change to bring about maximum effect in minimum time.  Rob will tell how together we can defeat atmospheric assaults of lethal over-heatings, fatal freezings to turn toxic tides where 50% of the oxygen we breathe comes from the ocean.  That's every other breath we take.
