The State of Our Oceans (Rebroadcast)


The State of Our Oceans (Rebroadcast) Dr. John Bender spends a lot of time with his mind on the ocean but he's not thinking of warm, sunny boat rides or fishing expeditions. Dr. Bender studies the dynamics of the ocean floor, specifically undersea volcanism. His work has led him to a deeper understanding of the health of our oceans and the news is not good. Dr. Bender has contributed a large report that studied the major threats to the world's oceans and what might be done to save them from further damage. He shares those findings with us.
