Ocean's End talk: Bath, Maine, May 14

If you live near Bath, Maine and have an interest in the future of our oceans, I'll be giving a talk on the global marine crisis and what is being done about it at the Maine Maritime Museum this Thursday, May 14.

The talk is based on my first book, Ocean's End: Travels Through Endangered Seas, an account of my global travels to investigate the environmental problems of the two-thirds of the planet that lie underwater. (I spent six weeks looking at climate and ozone effects in Antarctica, circumnavigated the Black Sea with leading scientists, politicians, and the heads of the Orthodox Christian church, and explored the reefs of Belize, the atolls of Micronesia, the bayous of Louisiana, and the outports of Newfoundland.) It's a sobering tale, but the good news is there's plenty we can do about the situation and, in this country at least, some important strides have been made.

The talk kicks off at 6pm in Long Reach Hall.
