Happy World Oceans Day! To celebrate the holiday, I'm sharing a TED talk from the same sesson that produced Captain Charles Moore on the seas of plastic in 2009, which I embedded in Student sustainability video festival 11: Great Pacific Garbage Patch: Sylvia Earle: How to protect the oceans (TED Prize winner!).
Legendary ocean researcher Sylvia Earle shares astonishing images of the ocean -- and shocking stats about its rapid decline -- as she makes her TED Prize wish: that we will join her in protecting the vital blue heart of the planet.That's inspiring. If anything, I think her message is even more urgent than it was eight years ago.
