mother talked about a cousin that disappeared off his boat in the Ocean prior to WWII. Very mysterious, boat had all supplies, he had no personal problems, and no sign of violence on the boat. The only clue he told a friend he saw something he should not have seen near the docks!

Think back to the 70’s, before environmentalism and concern for it became a trend. The amount of crap being dumped into it was staggering.

For thousands of years the ocean was only polluted by all the millions of cadavers dumped in it after the wars between nation of the long past, but 20th century arrived with multiple inventions that in a short period of time has caused so much destruction on that body of water. The consequences of our pollution to the ocean can be very well be a major force of accelerating the warming of the planet.

And let’s not forget the earth we have under our feet. The uncontested murder of horned omnivores has become a threat to all of us, not to mention the polar regions of our world. The sea is our last frontier and I cannot think about the future if we allow it to be destroyed too
