    Pharma Pollution

    Pharma Pollution

    Pharmaceutical pollution is as important and critical a factor for public health as microplastics and other chemical wastes that enter the water cycle, marine biota, and our bodies. A recent study by researchers at the Global Monitoring of Pharmaceuticals examined 258 rivers around the world and found that pharmaceutical pollution is contaminating water on every continent.

    Taiga Syndrome

    Taiga Syndrome

    Last week we discussed the vast bio-region of the Amazon River, one of the most productive and important ecosystems on the planet. This week we highlight another system--the taiga--an enormous boreal forest and wetland at the top of Canada and part of the Russian federation. Both of these systems are more valuable sustained than exploited.

    Ocean Capitalism: Under the Guise of New

    Ocean Capitalism: Under the Guise of New

    Is economic growth antithetical to the overall health of society? This week on World Ocean Radio we discuss the concentration of capital and offer two examples of an ocean economy currently dominated by special interests, including the recent creation of Natural Asset Companies designed to turn ecosystem services into tradable commodities.

    Ocean Advertising

    Ocean Advertising

    The biggest single problem facing ocean conversation is the lack of public awareness and political will. Public engagement efforts by agencies, institutes and NGOs are more fulsome than ever, yet the campaigns and power of those invested in the status quo to undermine the data, resist the alternatives, and misinform the public are as robust as ever. Enter The Economist Magazine--connected to more than 100 million worldwide, and their latest effort to inform the public about marine chemical pollutants. With access to such a vast audience of change agents, it is an opportunity ripe with recruitment opportunity, and an invitation for alliance and amplification.

gobbledegook

this is just more bull*** making the unprovable case that man caused global warming. climates change and in a geological time frame the world will most certainly not be the same in a century or two with and without mans influence. making common cause with the CCP and tearing down this county and limiting our children’s future potential for wealth and fulfillment will do nothing to curb your so called catastrophic climate change.

A gem for everyone concerned about our ocean

I look forward to the insights and editorial confronting the seriousness of climate change and how deeply we are impacting our oceans. In just 5 minutes, Peter packs a powerful punch. Thank you!
