    in Books

    Dr. Michael S. Atkins is a marine biologist and a biological oceanographer, and has been involved in ocean sciences for nearly 30 years. His career has taken him into marine, terrestrial, and even extraterrestrial (simulated anyway) ecosystems to look at a wide diversity of living organisms that make a living doing some very extraordinary things. 


    Dr. Atkins has been fortunate enough to work as an ocean scientist all over the world and even at the bottom of the ocean in deep submersible vehicles. He has worked and consulted on National Science Foundation Life in Extreme Environments and NASA Astrobiology Institute projects to detect life throughout the universe using the ocean bottom as a model. 


    From 2000 to the present Dr. Atkins has been involved with education and public outreach projects around the world regarding marine sciences. He was a microbiologist in a segment of the National Geographic documentary "Sustainable Seas", and served as a scientific consultant and deep-submersible diver in the film "Aliens of the Deep", by director James Cameron and Disney Pictures, among many other EPO projects both on land and the oceans.


    Henry and Tom is Dr. Atkins' first fiction novel based on his experiences with and love for the world's oceans and its remarkable inhabitants.

    Special Guest: John Kane (Mohawk), on the line with me from Seneca Territory in western New York. He is a national radio, TV and print commentator on Native issues.

    Show Topic: John's commentary on the Keystone XL Pipeline.

    The Canadian company TransCanada hopes to begin building the northern section of an oil pipeline that would trek close to 2,000 miles from Alberta, Canada to the Gulf Coast of Texas. If constructed, the pipeline, known as Keystone XL, will carry one of the world’s dirtiest fuels: tar sands oil. Along its route from Alberta to Texas, this pipeline could devastate ecosystems, pollute water sources and jeopardize public health.

    American Cave Conservation Association - David G. Foster, Executive Director

    in Environment

    On Tuesday December 16th at 8pm est, 7pm cst and 5pm pst, we are excited to be welcoming Dave Foster, Executive Director of the ACCA, to Natures Talk Show to discuss cave conservation. We will learn some fascinating details of cave ecosystems and groundwater issues. There are amazing animals and plants that have evolved in cave conditions. Created on An Ecological Mandate

    ACCA is concerned with all caves, regardless of their mode of origin or location. However, most caves are found in the earth's more water-soluble rocks such as limestone, dolomite, marble and gypsum.  The lands in which these types of caves are found are called karst or karstlands.  

    In karst, there is appreciable groundwater movement through dissolved-out  openings in the bedrock; karstlands often have features such as sinkholes, sinking streams, springs, and sometimes caves. 

    Approximately 20% of the United States is karst.  In karst, the surface and the subsurface are intimately connected; cave and groundwater resources cannot be widely used without careful land use of the surface.  Simply put, clean caves and karst equal clean water.
