Ocean change is a narrative that would include US voters who have a significant reason to vote, at the 2016 national elections, for candidates who promise to stop carbon emissions. They are voters in the fishing and seafood processing industries. They are in communities of all states that have coastlines. And, it is easier for those voters to relate to carbon emissions changing some thing they can see and feel–ocean water and species at the base of the seafood chain; than carbon emissions something that is measured over decades–climate.
Also, the ocean change narrative will include great number of votes who already value the oceans for other reasons. They’ll join the ocean change narrative when they realize carbon emissions combining with water creates ocean acidification–a key element of ocean change; and that only leaders in Washington can stop ocean change.
