90% of The Big Fish Are Gone- Sylvia Earle Oceanographer

Posted by Dan Satterfield

The air we breath, and ALL of the food we eat are intimately connected to the oceans. Dan's Pic.

I heard an interview this morning on the BBC World Service with Sylvia Earle, the renowned oceanographer. She talked about the “grave threat” our oceans are in, and mentioned several basic facts that few people are aware of. You can listen to the 23 minute interview by clicking the image below, and It’s well worth your time. A significant minority of people believe the oceans are far to vast for we humans to damage, but the facts illustrate how totally absurd this statement is.

Somehow, some way, we must do a better job of educating the next generation about the oceans. There is no greater threat to our species than our neglect of them. The next 10 years will define the next 10,000- Sylvia Earle.
