This video should be required viewing of all college students. No matter what you think about the politics, Gore presents evidence. That evidence makes a great starting point for a semester-long discussion on the role of science and debate over global warming.

This report builds upon the Pew Report and offers several key recommendations. Some of the recommendations of the Commission are already being discussed and implemented. Although much remains to be done, this report has already stimulated regional and state efforts to coordinate ocean conservation programs. The report provides a wealth of information on human uses of and human impacts on ocean resources.
