Season's Greetings! Here's a short interview I did at the ENLIT Europe energy conference earlier this month. It was a wonderful experience to engage with new audiences. One company I met with has already approached us to sign the pledge in support of a moratorium on deep-sea mining and committing not to source minerals from the deep-sea! Will your company be next? noseabedmining.org
Together we can stop a disaster from starting!

From the ENLIT website:
In an exclusive interview at Enlit Europe 2022, Pamela Largue speaks to Farah Obaidullah of Women4Oceans about the threats to our oceans, how to mitigate them and why the energy transition and blue economy work hand in hand.
According to Obaidullah, we cannot address the climate and energy issues without addressing the ocean issues and one of the biggest issues threatening the health of our oceans is deep sea mining.
Companies are looking to extract minerals required for the energy transition from 4-6km below the ocean floor.
The process will see the sea floor strip-mined for mineral nodules, destroying habitat and reintroducing stored carbon back into the atmosphere, potentially with dire consequences.
