Join TED prize recipient and leading oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle at the Explorers Club for a discussion on how we can and must save the world’s most crucial natural resource ? the living ocean ? while there is still time.

In early 2009, a panel of top scientists led by marine toxicologist Dr. Susan Shaw and Dr. Earle came together to convey a powerful message about the enormity of the crisis facing the world’s oceans at the first State of the Oceans Forum. Now, these Explorers return for a follow-up forum about the innovative solutions, leadership and resources required to make a difference for future generations. Join them at the Second State of the Oceans Forum: Facing the Crisis: Reasons for Hope on Monday, December 7, 2009, 7:00-9:00pm at the Explorers Club’s World Center for Exploration in New York City.

Cuba’s Offshore Oil Development ? Radio Discussion on NPR-WGCU

Tune in to NPR station WGCU (Southwest Florida) on Wednesday, August 26, 2009 at noon Eastern/9am Pacific. Dr. David E. Guggenheim, the “Ocean Doctor,” will be part of a radio discussion on “Gulf Coast Live,” for a program focused on oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, and specifically, the fact that Cuba is now rapidly pursuing the development of its oil resources in the Gulf following the discovery of a major oil reserve there in 2004.

From WGCU: “The battle lines have been drawn and the fight over oil in the Gulf deepens. We’ll take a closer look at the pros and cons of drilling – we’ll hear from both sides as to whether or not it can solve our oil and gas dependency and whether it’s even safe. Also on the show – Cuba is ready to begin drilling off its northern coast. It may start leasing to companies willing to drill for oil by the end of next year. Is Cuba’s oil demand going to affect Florida’s waters?
