“The World is Blue: How Our Fate and the Ocean are One” The life of the ocean & the importance of the ocean to human life- Pt 2

Dr. Sylvia Earle is clearly one of America’s great oceanographers and ocean explorers, who has been fondly called “Her Deepness” and a “living legend” by the Library of Congress. Dr. Earle is the National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence and chair of the Advisory Councils for the Harte Research Institute and Ocean in Google Earth. She has led over 400 marine expeditions, and has chalked up approximately 7,000 hours underwater. She holds the world’s records in women’s solo diving and has walked untethered on the sea floor at a lower depth than any other human being. Sylvia has earned well over a hundred awards for her work in ocean exploration, including the prestigious TED Prize in 2008 and being hailed as Time magazine’s first “hero for the planet” in 1998. She is also an expert on the impact of oil spills, and was called upon to investigate the catastrophes of the Exxon Valdez and Mega Borg. She has written numerous articles and many books, including an Atlas of the Ocean and children’s books about ocean life and reefs. “The World is Blue: How Our Fate and the Ocean are One”
