The world ocean is a sick sea. The symptoms are no longer deniable; the evidence mounts daily in nauseating waves of reported spills and leaks, dying reefs, depleted fisheries, and vast areas so oxygen-deprived that nothing lives. I keep looking for the good news.
Every human need for the future -- fresh water, food, energy, medicine, security, and psychological renewal -- is dependent on a healthy, sustainable world ocean. The ocean is our cure. Why would we destroy it?
