This week I had the great good fortune to join about two dozen of our colleagues in Seattle for a briefing about the “second climate solution” also known as BioCarbon.  Put simply: If the first climate solution is reducing greenhouse gas emissions and moving towards energy sources that are more sustainable and less polluting, then the second is making sure that we don’t forget about those natural systems that have so long been our allies in removing and storing excess carbon from the atmosphere.

Ever dreamed of seeing Cuba? Wonder what keeps those old rat rod cars running? What about all the hype about Cuba’s well-preserved coastal habitats? This year The Ocean Foundation received its people to people license from the Department of Treasury, which allows us to bring US travelers to experience the island’s culture and natural resources first hand.

Raise your hand if you have heard the term “king tide.” Raise your hand if the term sends you rushing to the tidal charts for your part of the coast.  Raise your hand if it means you’ll change your daily commute to stay out of flooded areas because today there will be a “king tide.”

For most of my childhood, I dreamt of the ocean. Growing up in a small suburb of Chicago, family trips to the coast only occurred every two or three years, but I jumped at every chance to learn more about marine environment. The shocking images of deep-sea creatures and the magnificent diversity of coral reefs that I came across in books and at aquariums amazed my young mind and, at eight years old, led me declare my intent to become a marine biologist to all those who would listen.
