What Is World Oceans Day Meant To Do?

Each year on June 8 we celebrate World Oceans Day, a date designated by the United Nations to recognize our relationship with the ocean through many different ways of global connection. Around the world, through the World Ocean Network, The Ocean Project, and many other organizations with ocean interests, events will take place to highlight the value of ocean resources. There will be maritime festivals and beach clean-ups, school projects and environmental presentations the world over – in Africa and Asia, Europe and the Americas. What was once a bright idea is now an international event that for one brief moment focuses some part of ephemeral world interest on the ocean and its benefit for all mankind.Of course, every day is ocean day. We can claim that with the authority of the headlines that every day point to some ocean issue of import: the crisis of plastic pollution and growing, swirling gyres around the world, the catastrophic disaster of a failed drilling rig or shipping accident, piracy in Arabian waters, the trade impacts of an expanded Panama Canal, the security implications of melting sea ice and the opening of Northern Arctic passages, the decline of fisheries across the world economy, relaxed ocean regulations and increased drilling and mining, and the continuing, growing evidence of the negative impact of climate change on the ocean and its capacity for supporting all aspects of human survival.What is World Oceans Day meant to do? If all those concerned with ocean issues were to shout at once, there would be a compelling noise, enough to let us know that others around the world also care, enough to give us confidence that our whole is greater by the sum of our individual voices, and perhaps enough to penetrate the consciousness of a political structure that for the most part continues to ignore ocean issues, willfully waiting until it is too late.

Here’s How To Keep Our Oceans Trash Free

Similarly, some four billion plastic microfibers per square kilometer litter the deep sea. Those staggering numbers pose a massive problem that could contaminate the world’s water ecosystems. They’re so massive that scientists are having trouble even gauging the impact. What can we do about it? Well, for starters check out Rob Greenfield’s new video. Rob’s a social activist who caught up with Eric Dieters, a man who’s skimming trash from San Diego’s bay area. While it’s just one part of the solution, the trash skimmer boat could be revolutionary in the way cities approach garbage pickup […]

A Syrian refugee camp got solar power for the first time.

The National Offshore Petroleum Safety and Environmental Management Authority mentioned the leak in an annual report on offshore exploration but revealed no details about who operated the well.

That information came to light on Friday, when Woodside Petroleum — Australia’s largest oil and gas producer, owned by Royal Dutch Shell — admitted to owning the well on the North West Shelf of the country. The leak began in April 2016 and lasted about two months. All told, it spilled nearly 2,800 gallons of oil into the ocean.

Woodside gave a statement to the Australian Broadcasting Company claiming the spill caused no damage: “Due to the composition of the fluid, small quantity released, water depth at release site, and distance from environmentally sensitive areas, there was no lasting impact to the environment.”

Offshore oil safety expert Andrew Hopkins told the Guardian that the Australian regulator’s failure to identify who was responsible for the spill is concerning, as it spares reckless firms from justice via “naming and shaming.”

“Companies that know they will be named in the case of an incident like this,” Hopkins said, “are going to be less likely to do it.”

United Nations Ocean Conference: Our Ocean, Our Future

The UN Ocean Conference, New York. June 5–9, 2017 At this moment, the UN has before it the challenge of its 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Goal 14 is Life Below Water, and it is the subject of a major UN Ocean Conference in June 2017 wherein all the nations, UN agencies, civil society and non-government organizations, the scientific community, financial institutions, and other interested parties will convene at the General Assembly in New York to exchange views, set objectives, seek funds, build partnerships, and otherwise focus specifically on the ocean and its relation to action toward sustainability in the 21st century. This conference, co-hosted by Sweden and Fiji, purports to be “a game changer that will reverse the decline of our ocean for people, planet, and prosperity.” There will be a final consensus declaration and call for action for the implementation of Goal 14 as part of an agenda targeted for success by 2030. The United Nations is the world’s grand secret society. Its machinations are pervasive, sometime fraught, oftentimes successful, and in its hand is found in the middle of the mix of international policy, regulation, collaborative practice, and conflict resolution that affects our lives in ways the public does not fully perceive or understand. It is, nonetheless, a system based on voluntary funding and commitments and is subject to the limits of consensus, not to mention the veto power of certain individual nations that can defy the agreement among all the others. Making progress in such an organization requires understanding of the conflicting needs among nations, diplomacy, compromise, and integrity measured mostly by payment of dues, funds dedicated by certain nations for certain goals and objectives, and time […]

Trump’s Executive Orders Ignore The Ocean’s ‘Blue Economy’

The war on nature seems to be targeting the ocean – again. President Donald Trump’s April 26 executive order to review national monuments created in the last ten years entails a review of national marine sanctuary designations, including the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument, the Rose Atoll Marine National Monument, the Mariana Trench Marine National Monument, and the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument. That announcement came a year and two days after former President Barack Obama expanded the boundaries of Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, now the world’s largest protected marine area and also under review. Two days later, Trump signed another order calling for a review of the current 2017-22 offshore energy development plan […]
