Kristina Gjerde, the high-seas policy advisor to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, speaks about the laws governing areas outside the realm of national juridiction—which is most of the ocean. This is a TED talk.
This is a sobering TED talk from Dr Jeremy Jackson, a well-known marine ecologist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, on what’s going on today in the global ocean. You might need a drink afterwards.

Just an admin note: things are going to be changing a bit around here, so please bear with me as I fiddle with layout and aesthetics. It’s good to be back after a bit of a hiatus.
