When I took Oceanography in college, it caused me to be aware how interconnected everything is, and I thought it should be a course required in every high school. I look forward to reading Carl Safina’s other books, and I know what I’m giving everyone for Christmas this year.

Also, I’m sure all the drilling and fracking cause earthquakes, but no one ever seems to talk about that.
