For shining seas

The Christian Science Monitor

Literally for centuries people around the world have believed that the ocean was a huge reservoir of food that could also be used as a major garbage dump. As population has increased, so has the pressure on the waters that make Earth shine like a blue jewel when viewed from space.

Disasters, such as oil spills when tankers are damaged by heavy seas or human error, emphasize the need for more wisdom in our attitudes toward the oceans. One specific way to tackle this problem could be to press for stricter regulations and technical improvements. But our oceans need healing right now.
