It was forty five years ago today that a small band of environmentalist set out from Vancouver, WA, in order to stop the U.S. nuclear testing in the North Pacific. Today, Greenpeace is a world wide movement, and better known for it's extreme measures to stop the proliferation of the planet's natural resources, primarily within our vast oceans utilizing a fleet of ships to promote their mission in protecting and conserving the environment.
Most of us only care for our own little corner of the world, and we view the actions of Greenpeace as something our crazy Uncle might be involved in. Today I'll be joined by Greenpeace Ocean Campaigner, David Pinsky, and his passion for our vast oceans and promoting sustainable fishing practices in the Tuna Industry (see his recent article in Ocean View). Let's explore the efforts that you and I can take that will make a difference, keep our planet healthy and vibrant, but won't bring the press and world governments down our neck. We'll leave that to Greenpeace!
Speaking of oceans, it's Coastal Cleanup Day on Saturday!
My program would not be complete without talking about Fresh Drinking Water, and the true value of this precious resource. The value that is only recognized when we have too much, like in the case of flooding, or the very real (but not yet realized) possibility that we don't have enough to go around, and we are left without! What...NO WATER?!!
