Video: TED Talks series - Greg Stone: Saving the Ocean One Island at a TimeLast Updated on 2015-05-27 16:57:45
TED Talks series, FILMED APR 2010 • POSTED NOV 2010 • Mission Blue Voyage
Aboard Mission Blue, scientist Greg Stone tells the story of how he helped the Republic of Kiribati create an enormous protected area in the middle of the Pacific -- protecting fish, sealife and the island nation itself.
Stone wants to explain to the audience his experience of working to protect islands and their surrounding marine life from sea level rise.
Sea levels are rising, and Kiribati, along with 42 other nations in the world, will be under water within 50 to 100 years. Some of the islands have already gone under water... What do we do with displaced fellow earthlings that no longer have a home on the planet?" (Greg Stone)
