A Summary of World Ocean Radio
September 1-15: World Ocean Radio
provides listeners with a window on the future of the world ocean, and ways in which ocean advocacy can affect positive and lasting change on a global scale. It is the mission of the World Ocean Observatory
to serve as a central place of exchange for ocean information, education and public discourse; to serve as an independent forum for ocean affairs; and to advocate for the ocean through an open, worldwide network of communication. We hope you will enjoy listening to World Ocean Radio
189: China and the Sea
About this episode:
China’s mercantile reach is everywhere. It is a major factor in global trade with the United States and Europe, international monetary activity and debt financing, and the geo-political, social and economic impacts to much of the globe, as well as an increasing concern with their maritime ambitions. In this episode of World Ocean Radio we'll discuss China's relationship with the sea, and will explain the exchange of goods (transported primarily by ship) and how continuing polar melt and other changing climate conditions are contributors to increased access to a time- and cost-saving transportation route.
188: Whatever Floats
About this episode:
Whatever floats. Such thoughts came to World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill recently while on vacation, suspended in the supportive waters of the ocean. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, he'll discuss all manner of things that float, from the natural to the man-made, from the obvious modes of transport, trade and recreation to objects that function quite unnaturally on water.
