  • The world’s oceans are gasping for breath, a report issued Saturday at the annual global climate talks in Madrid has concluded.
  • It found that oxygen levels in the world’s oceans declined by roughly 2% between 1960 and 2010.
  • And as ocean temperatures increase, the warmer water can’t hold as much gas, including oxygen, as cooler water.
