BP_Louisiana_Oil_Rig_Collapse Since I follow, and have posted, the rowing and progress of Roz Savage, I thought I would post her recent Tedprize MissionBlue TED Talk (Wikipedia info). Although I don’t see eye to eye with her robust embrace of the‘green political’ bureaucracy, I do recognize the impact we humans have on oceans and the marine environment.

For many, if our ecological mistreatment isn’t readily noticed, but ocean habitats are fragile as we are all noticing with the recent oil slick spreading in the Gulf of Mexico.

Below is Roz’s short speech during the recent MissionBlue Galapagos conference.

  1. lacking in consistency, constancy, or visible order, disconnected; fitful: desultory conversation.
  2. digressing from or unconnected with the main subject; random: a desultory remark.
