Climate Change is in the news again spanning all parts of the world. Today, I am talking about Climate Change affecting the US, Australia and Islands in the South Pacific. I will be focusing on Sea Level Rise and Sea Surface Temperature as it pertains to Adaptation to Climate Change. Here are the 3 topics for today:
1) US Military Funds Study To Reveal Effects Of Sea Level Rise On Military Operations in the South Pacific Ocean;
2) Australian Government Funds Great Barrier Reef $500 Million to fight against pollution and to "breed" resilient coral reefs; and,
3) Who owns the land after it is permanently flooded by sea level rise

Today is a very special episode because I finally opened up Ocean Talk Friday to people in the Facebook Group. It was the first time I did this and I am very happy to say that it worked out very well for the first time. 

Today we discuss some topics that I covered earlier in the week and that was how the US Marine Mammal Protection Act are requiring Countries who export fisheries to the US to conduct cetacean studies to prove that their fisheries are not harming cetaceans. 

The second topic is all about recycling. A recent article covered how people in Canada are not recycling properly and most of the items tagged for recycling are not recycled.

Christine Ren, from Christine Ren Films, is our guest on the podcast today. She is here for two reasons: 1) To tell us how underwater performances can make the personal connection of the ocean to the human race: and, 2) Christine and I got to catch up as we haven't been touch touch for a number of years.

Christine and I used to collaborate as I had Speak Up For Blue and she had Project Blue. We shared information, resources and strategies. Since then, Christine started a media company and has become an underwater performer. 

I'm looking forward to you hearing this interview because Christine is living proof that Marine Conservation Careers includes more than just straight research.

The UK is preparing to ban plastic straws. Will this be the first of many countries to do so? Plus, Boyat Slat's project is getting more publicity...is his highly criticized project to clean up the Ocean taking time and money away from other projects that focus on preventing plastics from getting into the Ocean? Finally, I talk about how people need to leave animals alone when they encounter them in the wild.

Today's episode is all about my vacation to Hawai'i. I'm here for a wedding, but used the opportunity to get some Marine Conservation done in the best way I know how, I volunteered to monitor Green Sea Turtles that would bask in the sun on the beach. I tell you all about it in this episode.

Alexis Brown is on the podcast today to discuss her podcast called "My Ocean" under the Ocean Wise Conservation Association. We get in to talking about all of the programs that Ocean Wise runs including the Vancouver Aquarium, Shoreline Clean Up, Seafood Program and Plastic Wise among others. 

Alexis and I have a great talk on Ocean Conservation and podcasting during this episode and I am so happy that Ocean Wise has started to podcast and get their voice heard to connect with a fantastic audience. 

Take The Pledge!!!

Two stories to discuss today:

1) The US is using the Marine Mammal Protection Act to make countries to thorough Cetacean surveys before they can ship fish to the US; and,

2) A recent CBC report revealed that Canadians may not be recycling properly due to a major miscommunication as to what does and does not get recycled. You will be surprised at a few of the items that don't get recycled.

Two things happened to me this week regarding the Oceans:

1) Today, I saw a Facebook friend post a fake map of "radiation" spread across the Pacific Ocean after the Japanese Tsunami. Find out why it's fake by listening to the episode; and,

2) I had a run in with a Politician and some of his followers about the way people voted in the last Canadian election. I was set up to be attacked, so I decided to talk about the experience to warn you about politicians (it doesn't matter which party they are from).

Melanie Knight is my guest today on the podcast to discuss how she got inspired by plogging, the act of picking up litter while jogging. Melanie talks with me about how she got started and why she did a 30 day challenge of plogging. Her efforts got her on TV as well as in the newspaper of a nationally distributed company (Globe and Mail). 

Melanie is not just a plogger. She tells me about how she works with towns all over Canada to create catch and release aquariums. It's pretty fascinating stuff.

There is a lot to update you on the program today. I first talk about the 10% loss in population of North Atlantic Right Whales and why there is such a decline; My opinion on the validity of Marine Conservation Documentaries and their manipulation of what a marine environment should look like; and, an oil spill ignited in Indonesian Borneo killing 4 fishers and adding toxic chemicals into the atmosphere affecting the air quality of the local community.

I had the great opportunity to meet and work with Rebecca at OceanDotCom 2018 hosted by LUMCON. During the event, Rebecca came to me to ask if she would like me to have her on the podcast to talk about how cool Jellyfish are...and of course, I said "YES!!!"

So we got together last week to record this episode and to discuss the variability of jellyfish. In particular, Rebecca wanted to discuss a study that was published a number of years ago reporting that climate change will bring on more blooms of jellyfish. Apparently, that is not the case and Rebecca is here to set us all straight.

Today is a special episode, not necessarily because of the topic (Carbon Tax), but because I recorded the episode live in the Facebook Group. I did it for two reasons: 1) I want to have the podcast to include the members of the Facebook group; and, 2) I wanted to switch things up on the podcast partly because this episode is number 450. 

Today's topic is all about the Carbon Tax. It's not a popular tax, as popular as any tax; however, it is a tax that Canada and other countries/states are talking about implementing in their policies. some people say the Carbon Tax will not work because governments will not be transparent with the money raised by the Tax. Others feel that we all need to do something about Climate Change and people are incentivized by money.
