Sea Sickness

  • English

  • Listen

    The world ocean is sick. The symptoms are no longer deniable: reported oil spills, leaks, runoff, dying reefs, warming temperatures, melting ice, changing pH, depleted fisheries, and hypoxic zones. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will talk about the state of the world ocean, will discuss “sea blindness” as a symptom of our current condition, and will ask, “What will it take?”, suggesting that we know what must be done but we are not yet aware enough, mad enough, or desperate enough to do enough about it.
