After I spoke about sustainable and Zero Waste stores last week, I got some listener feedback that I thought I would share because I thin kit's important to tell people where some of these sustainable options exist. 

Arleen Paredes, a great Speak Up For The Ocean Blue Listener and a Nurse in New York City, contacted me after she listened to the episode to share the stores that she has discovered that are more sustainable. I share those options with you on this episode.

I also discuss Podcasting for Conservation and how that has changed my life for the better and how it lead me to launch podcasts for other organizations to allow them to share the work they do and the passion of the staff that does the work to their audience. 

If you would like to launch your podcast or you would like help with your existing podcast, then please feel free to email me: andrew@speakupforblue.com.

Do you want to share your sustainable store options? Let us know where you shop in the Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Greta Thunberg has made the adult world aware that young people across the globe are demanding to see more actions across the globe. There are other young people who are doing the same thing representing youth and their countries to step up climate change actions.

I give you a brief description of 9 Young Climate Activists that you should be following to help inspire you to tell your governments that they should be doing more about Climate Change.

Do you know any Climate Change Activists? Share who they are in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Have you ever wondered how products stay on the grocery store shelf for so long? There is a specific way companies make sure they last so long. 

Have you ever wondered how the size of the packaging impacts the amount of the product you use? There is a specific reason for that as well.

On today's episode, I talk about how marketing and competition drive the quality of the products and the potential impact they have on the environment and human health.

The Canadian Government, controlled by the Liberals, bought a pipeline for $4.5 Billion. Environmentalists were angry that the government did not fulfill their promise in reducing climate change; however, is that what is really going on? 

An opinion article in the National Observer goes over the $70 Billion dollar Climate plan that the Canadian Government is undergoing in an Oil & Gas dominated economy.

Here is the link to the article:

https://www.nationalobserver.com/2019/06/21/opinion/serious-70-billion-climate-plan-youve-heard-nothing-about?fbclid=IwAR3PU3IAAntViAJ0AJjJ1Shux7DOhtGYoC2U88gauB7Nqq_-0BzbWUx2Ru0

Did you hear Greta Thunberg's United Nations Climate Summit speech from yesterday? The long-anticipated speech from the passionate young lady could go down in history as one of the best Climate Speeches (In My Honest Opinion). 

Listen to the entire speech during this episode and my thoughts on it. 

Here is the link to the speech with video:

A really good article was published in the Tyee recently, where the author, Andrew Nikiforuk, spoke with Global Fisheries Expert, Dr. Daniel Pauly, and asked him what he would change about global fisheries if he were a Global Fisheries Minister. Daniel had 3 things that he would change:

1) End Government Subsidies For Industrial Fisheries Fleet;
2) Create Fishing Reserves For Small, Local Fisheries; and,
3) Establish No-Go Zones To Protect Fish.

Listen to the episode for more information.

Here are some links on Dr. Daniel Pauly:
University Of British Columbia Website
The Sea Around Us Project Website

The Climate Strike has inspired a number of young people to participate in the strike as well as participate in conversations on Climate Change with their parents and other adults that may or may not "believe" in Climate Change. 

To help the newer people to this conversation, ScienceAlert wrote an article that debunks 5 of the Climate Denier statements that refute Human-Causing Climate Change. I decided to make it in audio form thanks to the article in the link below:

Finding a job in Marine Conservation is tough. Building a career in Marine Conservation is even tougher. There are more people vying for positions and less funding available to pay the people. 

Jobs do exist and people do build their careers; however, you really need to prepare yourself for a job in Marine Conservation while you are learning about the subject at University/College. 

Listen to the episode to find out why you need to get experience in University/College and Why you need to do it.

There was an article that I recently read that explained how climate change was melting the snow on mount Everest, exposing the trash left by climbers as well as dead mount climbers who did not succeed in reaching the peak. 

It got me thinking of all the places that we humans like to explore, which opens up the potential for us to ruin every nice place on Earth. 

I discuss how we need to do better to live for a better Ocean. Do you agree with my thought? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

It's like a scene straight out of IT, when Penny Wise turns into a monster and you see all of his nasty teeth. Not many people would compare the mouth and esophagus of a Sea Turtle to a fictional serial killer monster that is topping the box office at the moment, but it is all I can think of while looking into that mouth.

The mouth of a Sea Turtle is full of sharp barbs that face inward. Guess what they are for and listen to the episode to find out their function.

Do you think the barbs are a smart adaptation? Let me know in the facebook group (I will also share pictures in the facebook group): http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.

Japan is considering the option to dump some of its nuclear waste into the Ocean as storage space is running out. South Korea is looking to avoid that situation and engaging in talks to find alternative solutions. 

I am not looking forward to seeing the "fake map" about radiation spreading around social media again as it tends to do once or twice a year. 

Listen to the episode for more details.

I speak with Guillermo Ortuno, a Ph.D. student at Duke University, to find out how meetings at the United Nations work to better manage the high seas by making existing agreements better. 

Guillermo wrote a paper with some colleagues about how there are more than 4000 fish species that are not managed under the current agreements because they are not designated as commercially important. 

We talk about the difference between a policy brief and a peer-reviewed paper and its effectiveness.

President Donald Trump made a mistake when he said Hurricane Dorian was going to hit Alabama. He could have admitted that he made a mistake and that would have been the end of it; however, in true Trump style, he did not admit to the mistake. Instead, the President had the Secretary of Commerce tell the acting director of NOAA that there will be no more contradictory posting against the president even though he is wrong...

Check out the episode to listen to all of the details.

Five years ago, an Ocean heatwave occurred in the North Pacific Ocean that affected the salmon, humpback whales, and caused algal blooms. The heatwave was known as the Blob. 

The Blob has returned in 2019 and looks to be hotter than five years ago. Listen to the episode for more details.

The summer of 2019 has been a terrible year for the Endangered Northern Right Whale. 6 individual whales were killed in Canada within 48 hours due to ship strikes or fishing gear entanglement. The whale population cannot endure summers similar to this one as there are only 400 individuals left with less than 100 of those individuals are breeding females. 

The US and Canadian governments along with industry and environmental organizations are working together to prevent further damage to the population. However, one group, the Maine Lobstermen Association, says that it conducted its own study that identified other sources of disturbance as the primary reason for the population decrease.  

Listen to the episode to find out why I agree (kind of) with the Association with some reservations.

More Stories from CBC on the Northern Right Whales.

Illegal fishing is difficult to enforce on the Ocean. The key to enforcing illegal activity on the water is monitoring. Using a boat and/or a plane can be costly and does not cover enough space to monitor effectively, which is the reason why satellites have become a great option for enforcement agencies to help in monitoring illegal activities. 

Listen to the episode to find out how a company is about to release 36 satellites into space to help monitor illegal fishing.

Before we get to the show notes, I wanted to take some time to say that my thoughts are with the families who have been affected by Hurricane Dorian. Here is a link to an article that shows where you places where you can support the people who need it the most: https://clairejefford.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=10584&action=edit

TikTok Helping To #SaveTheOceans

TikTok is a social media platform that allows people to create short content in various forms (music, skits, etc.). It's a platform that is used by a younger demographic. It's a great platform to not only raise awareness of environmental problems but to raise money for a great cause. 

Conservational International has teamed up with TikTok to raise money to save the Oceans. Every time a creator from a particular country uses the hashtag #SaveTheOceans, TikTok will donate $2 to the fund (up to $100,000). 

Find out more details by listening to the episode.

There is a popular tourist spot in New Zealand, where people not only watch bottlenose dolphins, they also swim with them. Unfortunately, the swimming and touching of the dolphins have led to their decrease in population. There are now only 19 dolphins that return to the area. 

The New Zealand Government have taken steps to protect the dolphins by banning swimming with the dolphins and only permitting a few boats to watch the dolphins over intervals of 20 minutes. The new restrictions along with regular monitoring could help the dolphins recover.

For more information, please listen to the episode.
