Stepping up on my Oceanic Soapbox...

I love water, whether it be the refreshing drink that comes from the my sink's tap, the Great Lakes, or the world's oceans. I've always felt a connection to the water  and credit/blame that connection for my addiction to sailing (see " Why I Sail "). I'm not much of an activist and I think you know if you've read my posts here over the years that I'm not very political either. However, I feel compelled to stand on a soapbox today and share an eye-opening graphic about ocean pollution and the importance of keeping our waters clean. Maybe it's my academic and professional background in marine biology, or maybe just my hope that my kids can see oceans cleaner than they are today. In any case, check out the following graphic and let it sink it in... Created by:
