Kylee Luckett It is our choices…that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. Today someone is shouting. Earles book is not an inconvenient truth, fueled by politics and funding, but rather, by Earles heart for the ocean, and its unique residents. Earle explores conflict and resolution, one chapter and issue at a time.
Earle explores conflict and resolution, one chapter and issue at a time. The elephant in the room Earle utilizes her chapter on fish to call the world out on the elephant in the room-overfishing.
Earle discusses how at one time in history, people believed that there was an infinite amount of fish to be caught, that there would never be a day when we would see something as popular as tuna, go extinct. She spends a fair amount of this chapter on the touchy subject that is almost always controversial-whaling.
She lends a nod The world is blue reflection essay her own initial ignorance of marine mammals in an honest confession. Whaling is just the tip of the iceberg or in this case, melting glacier, for Earle.
What would the world think if in fact the by catch of their tuna salad was the faithful Flipper? I recall my six year old self, carefully checking each can of tuna my mother placed in our shopping cart, seeking out that little smiling dolphin to confirm that my lunch would be free of dolphin massacre.
So much has changed since those would be conservation efforts. Earle does not forget to mention the smaller, less thought of creatures-the shellfish. Earle closes her shellfish segment with a sentence that hits close to home.
She lends advice however, to these dynamic and complex issues- and it is all so simple. Do not take, what you cannot replace, and do not take what you know nothing about. The world is a vampire- sent to drain. For the unknowing, that is Sarah Palin, a woman who agrees with offshore, and in some cases, onshore drilling.
The topic of oil is sensitive. Do you drill in former wildlife and marine reserves to avoid wars with your supplying companies? The steadily rising price of fuel and oil are making more Americans nod yes, than ever before.
Earle is shaking her head no. Earle does make serious mention of oil spills, reliving the Exxon Valdez casualty that permanently damaged the Alaskan shoreline.
Earle seems to feel the same. It is not as though she has an answer and it is not as if she is not willing to share, it is that no one has a surefire way to reroute the flight of emissions.
This chapter, though mind-blowingly effective, still has an unfinished climax, much like our planet. Uneducated or Unwilling to learn? Earle is consistently using the same explanation throughout her book as to why individuals are not taking more action.
In every chapter, she highlights examples of attitudes and expressions from people associated to the topic. There is not a single environmentalist who at one time did not face the reality transition of a need for change.
The issue is entirely complex and tedious because alongside the uneducated, are the unwilling. There has been an outward cry on the subject of climate change from Christians, denouncing it as political corruption, or that climate change is merely an effect listed in the book of Revelations.
Earle does not seem to let the major issue of uneducated and unwilling affect her view on the future. She positively lists the strides being made to better understand the ocean. I have definitely become something of a cheerleader for Earle after reading this book.
As a woman pursuing conservation science as a career, I found Earle to be a keen example of what one person can do in their field that can change the thoughts of others worldwide.
Earle uniquely includes what is right, and what is currently being done to change the course of the future. I have read several books on environmental issues, and none have so effectively utilized the opportunity to educate and motivate individuals like Earle has done in her book.
Earle has motivated me to keep fighting the good fight. Even if I do not know the outcome, at least I can say, I have made the effort in my lifetime to try.
Earle sets a standard for each reader, to simply make choices in favor of the planet, and its oceans.
We may not all have the ability to write books, give speeches, or work directly alongside the ocean, but we all have choices we can make to better our tomorrow. We are living in a time of great uncertainty, and are all faced with a forked road ahead of us."The World Is Blue" Reflection Essay Kylee Luckett BIO Dr.
