Our BLUE PLANET… sky and sea and crystalline ice
A most magnificent living globe in perpetual motion of watery highways
Currents, the thermal conveyer belt, circulating
Heat, cool, nourish, cleanse and renew
The Ocean is essential to life on earth, uninhabitable without it

Our earth heats up … warmed from equator to poles
Like a prism’s focused light
Ice caps melt … oceans rise … waves roll warmer
One of the most significant symbols of a changing planet … sea ice thinning
Impacting the course of the oceans’ global currents …
A catalyst for altering and shifting a spectrum of climatic changes.

On our watery planet the climate is governed largely by the oceans.
