The report 'Predicting the impacts of mining deep sea polymetallic nodules in the Pacific Ocean' launched this week, provides a clear scientific consensus: the impact of mining deep sea nodules would cause irreversible damage to the ocean and last for generations and a moratorium on deep sea mining is the only responsible way forward.
