Here on Earth

For the last few weeks I’ve been reading this really great book lately entitled “Here on Earth: A Natural History of the Planet” by Tim Flannery and I have to say that I highly recommend it which is a little surprising.  It’s one of those books that I found somewhere while at work and even though it sounded good, I was very skeptical.

Chapter 4, where I left off today,  had some really good stuff on oceans and how they regulate salt but I have to admit, one topic he hasn’t discussed  yet is the noise of the ocean. That however, has been covered in a really great article entitled “A Riding Tide of Noise is Now Easy to See” by William Broad at the New York Times. There both good reads
