From this article:

"What the world is lacking are ecological engineers and warriors ready and willing to address the threats to our planet and especially to our oceans."
"What the great majority of people do not understand is this: unless we stop the degradation of our oceans, marine ecological systems will begin collapsing and when enough of them fail, the oceans will die."
"And if the oceans die, then civilization collapses and we all die."

Are you willing to become an Ecological warrior to help stop the threat of the oceans dieing on us forever? Are you willing to change your behaviors in order to save our Oceans? These choices are up to you! If you do not chose to become an ecological warrior and if you are not willing to change those behaviors of yours which are killing the Oceans, then you are going to have to accept responsibility for the destruction of the Earth's key instruments of life on this planet, our Oceans!

Here is a list of ten things you can do to save the Oceans of this planet:

  1. LEARN all you can. Read, surf the web and experience the ocean directly.
  2. Be a SMART SHOPPER. Ask grocery stores and restaurants about the source of their seafood.
  3. CONSERVE water. Be careful when washing your car or watering your lawn.
  4. REDUCE household pollutants. Cut down and properly dispose of herbicides, peticides and cleaning products.
  5. REDUCE waste. Dispose of trash properly. Where possible, recycle, re-use, and compost.
  6. REDUCE automobile pollution. Use fuel efficient vehicles or carpol. Recycle moter oil and repair oil and air conditioning leaks.
  7. PROTECT ocean wildlife. Don't dispose of fishing lines, nets, or plastic items in or near the water.
  8. BE CONSIDERATE of sealife habitats. Don't bother sea birds, mammals, and turles or their nesting grounds. Support marine protected areas.
  9. GET INVOLVED. Take part in a beach cleanup or other ocean-related activities.
  10. CARE! PASS ON YOUR KNOWLEDGE!

Thoughts worth thinking about

"Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives."-Sidney Madwed



Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every woman and man present their views without penalty, there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.- Albert Einstein Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. - Leo Buscaglia



A person's true wealth is the good he or she does in the world. - Mohammed



Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty. -Albert Einstein



The best way to find yourself, is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Ghandi



The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves. - Helen Keller



Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism. Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier and more productive person. - Dr. David M. Burns



Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not die, so do other creatures. -His Holiness The Dalai Lama



Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. -



Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being



The worst sin towards our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them. That's the essence of inhumanity. -George Bernard Shaw

Ego's trick is to make us lose sight of our interdependence. That kind of ego-thought gives us a perfect justification to look out only for ourselves. But that is far from the truth. In reality we all depend on each other and we have to help each other. The husband has to help his wife, the wife has to help the husband, the mother has to help her children, and the children are supposed to help the parents too, whether they want to or not.-Gehlek Rinpoche Source: "The Best Buddhist Writing 2005 pg. 165

The hostile attitude of conquering nature ignores the basic interdependence of all things and events---that the world beyond the skin is actually an extension of our own bodies---and will end in destroying the very environment from which we emerge and upon which our whole life depends.
