I get emails, as I am sure you do as well. But this one caught my eye: it wasn't the typical "our oceans are dying; can you send us money?" plea I get. This one came from Cool Effect, an organization dedicated to fighting climate change/global warming, and it spoke to me.
While quoting the owner of the company Blue Wave Adventures, an eco-tourism outfit out of South Carolina, Cool Effect's email noted that Captain Mark has a "unique perspective on the impact that climate change is having on our planet," having been on the sea for 26+ years, and went on to state that "a little talk and a little action can go a long way in the fight against climate change."
Kudos to you both, for bringing the fun on the ocean as well as the stewardship responsibilities we all share to protect Mother Earth, even as we appreciate and enjoy her features.
