Oceans: No Blue, No Green

Standard

Today’s post is an inspirational TED Talk link from ocean researcher Sylvia Earle:

“With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live.” – Sylvia Earle

“The ocean environment is unquestionably linked to human life. Covering 71% of our planet, it is the basic component that makes all life on Earth possible. All life, including our own, depends on a healthy ocean. The Ocean Heals Us by providing important information that leads to medical breakthroughs with powerful abilities. For example, painkillers modeled after cone snail toxins are 1,000 times more powerful than morphine.

“The Ocean Nourishes Us by providing a healthy source of protein rich in essential fatty acids. with most of the world’s fishers now stressed by over fishing, we need to stay informed on sustainable seafood choices.

“The Ocean Sustains Us by proving the driving force of our climate, which in turn provides most of the freshwater and oxygen essential to our lives, which feeds our crops and quenches our thirst. Oceanographer, National Geographic Explorer-in -Residence.”
