While sensational local news tends to grab our attention, let's not take our eyes of the larger, more global picture. All of us depend upon the health of the world's oceans, even those of us that live over a thousand miles away from the nearest ocean. Everything in nature is linked together in the web of life. The way that I treat my yard impacts the run off into the nearby pond, then stream, then river, and finally the ocean. All the stuff that I buy often involves considerable production costs, not the least of which is paid by the environment. Every time I drive my car it has a huge environmental impact. It still rings true, think globally and act locally. Let's be the change that we want to see in the world.
