This 18-minute talk (click here to watch) by reef ecologist Jeremy Jackson on the degradation on the marine environment is compelling, persuasive, and profoundly depressing. You owe it to the planet to give it a look.
Jackson, known to many as Dr. Doom, is the Ritter Professor of Oceanography and Director of the Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Some of you may think guys like this are nothing but raving tree-huggers, but I personally find Jackson hard to ignore.
Many thanks to TED (a great site and resource, by the way) for recently making this available.
