The ocean is broken
If we didn't have a clear understanding what we, the people, of the earth, have done to our habitat before, this article written by Greg Ray of the
The Newcastle Herald and reposted in Yahoo News! should clearly tell us. It tells the story of sailor, Ivan Macfadyen who retraced a route from
Melbourne, Australia to Osaka, Japan and what he found during his travels.
IT was the silence that made this voyage different from all of those before it.
And why was it so quiet?
No fish. No birds. Hardly a sign of life at all.
The cause was a complete shock to the veteran sailor. Fishing trawlers working day and night were emptying the area of all fish, killing and dumping
what they didn't want. In essence, killing the ocean.
The article's own words best express this next part of the story:
If that sounds depressing, it only got worse. The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the
desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear.
All the horrible things that have been described about the tsunami of Japan, have been nothing compared to the reality described in the article. The
oil slicks, plastic, metal, power poles and other refuse of civilization washed out to sea is spread from Osaka to San Francisco, which was the next
part of the trek.
Read the article to learn more about this horrific 28 day trip in early 2013. Ivan Macfadyen and his yachting friends are not giving up on the ocean,
though, they plan on fighting to revive and save this beautiful part of our earth, anyway they can.
