Abstract: "Don't forget the sea" was the strident call of Carl Gustaf Lundin, head of International Union for Conservation of Nature's global marine programme, in the frantic run-up to the botched Copenhagen climate talks. His cri du coeur went largely unnoticed as the plight of the arctic, glaciers, and drought-stricken regions dominated the conference proceedings and media reports. Malta's territorial waters are nearly 20 times its land area, so it has a vested interest in clamouring for the climate change talks to focus more on the plight of the sea. A progressive surge in sea temperature and salinity in the Mediterranean has been recorded by various studies in recent years.
