Better late than never

While I am nowhere near the oceans, I am a friend of the oceans and so here are a couple of articles ( the last two of which came out in honor of World Oceas Day) on my friend the oceans.

The first one is a great article from the New York Times entitled “Mapping the Sea and It’s Mysteries” by William J. Broad at the New York Times. It’s a great read.

The last two are articles on recent films about our oceans. They are “Sea Change Documentary Highlights Threat of Ocean Acidification” by Sarah Van Schagen at the Grist and “End of the Line: Plenty of Fish in the Sea” by Linda Geddes at the New Scientist.

Did I mention the rain?

As the rivers and creeks fill up and I remember the sign we found in our local creek saying that it’s against the law to even be in the creek, I recently came across this article on creeks entitled “Rebooting Urban Watersheds: Activist Restore Blighted Bay Area Creeks–and Impoverished Communities” by Jeremy Miller at High Country News.
