Science Journal reports ocean dead zones growing
Our friend and Whalesong Project contributor, Katie Grove-Velasquez, just sent a report from Underwater Times with a summary of an August 15 Science journal article about the growing ocean dead zones, which are referred to as the "key stressor on marine ecosystems." Once again we see, as the ancient Hawaiians and other cultures did, that the things we do on land are reflected in the health of the oceans. We seem to need to make a lifestyle change towards sustainable agriculture, transportation, energy production fairly rapidly. From Hong Kong, I wish you all a good day.
