No Blue, No Green, No Oceans, No Us.

That quote from the great oceanographer Dr. Silvia Earle says it all. If the world’s oceans could talk they might say… #MeToo

Please join us on Thursday, July 5th, from 12:30 to 1:50 pm. for my talk on “The State of Our Oceans” in 2154 Humanities and Social Sciences Building (HSS) on UCSD campus. Take this mindblowing trip under the seas to grasp the magnitude and scope of the problems we face, and explore how we may begin to heal our Big Blue. This lecture is free and open to the public. Come early if you need visitor parking and join us for lunch afterward.

THIS is What Democracy Looks Like!

Last Tuesday, June 12, 2018, a contingent of dedicated, informed, intrepid volunteers from all over the U.S. and numerous other countries lobbied Congress for a price on carbon. We had over 500 meetings in the Capitol. I personally had 5 meetings with offices ranging from far left, to far right, to middle-of-the-road, on the political spectrum. We ARE moving the needle and we ARE seeing progress. I was also extremely fortunate to be among a small handful of people who were personally escorted to the Senate Chambers by environmental champion Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (RI) to hear his weekly address on climate change. I am honored and moved to be a part of this noble effort.

Our Military and Climate

I’ll be speaking tomorrow, Wednesday, May 9th, 12:30 pm at the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) luncheon at Anchors on Naval Base San Diego. My topic: “Our Military and Climate”. All are welcome, join us. The $20 admission includes a huge buffet lunch. The event will be called to order at 1130 am followed shortly by the meal. My talk will begin at 12:30 pm. Enter the parking lot before entering the base.  Directions to Anchors: From the north take I-5 south, exit Main Street (first exit after I-15 exit).  Continue straight to Main Street (first and only traffic light).  Do not turn at the traffic light, but proceed straight toward the south entrance to NBSD but do not enter the base.  Anchors is found by turning right just a few meters before the guard gate at the base entrance.  The facility is on the base but it’s accessible to the public.
