• my ocean, your ocean

    Did you know you own the ocean?  A few months ago I introduced you to oceanographer Bruce Monger and his campaign to get everyone to realize just that.  Check out Dr. Monger’s important new blog It’s My Ocean and stake your claim.  You’ll find a whole host of ways to do it along with lots of cool information about what lurks beneath.  The good news is that if you’re reading this site, you’re off to a good start.  A great way to treat your ocean right is to reduce or eliminate your consumption of fish and up the whole, plant-based foods in your diet.  Ahoy!

    I just completed my certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Foundation, a course I was inspired to take after reading Dr. Campbell’s The China Study. If you need any more convincing about the benefits of a plant-based diet, read this book.  After decades of research, Dr. Campbell comes clean about the medical establishment and why we don’t hear more about the benefits of plant versus animal protein.  And yes, this includes fish.

    I was very impressed by a lecture on the environmental impacts of aqua culture and eating fish by oceanographer Bruce Monger.  A Senior Research Associate in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University, Dr. Monger reminds us that “the ocean is owned by everyone” and urges us to take responsibility for it in the same way we do any other aspect of our lives.  Only then can we preserve this precious resource.

    See what’s happening to your ocean with this powerful presentation on The Global Fish Crisis from National Geographic.
