Accounting for seventy one percent of planet Earth, the ocean is a natural ecosystem that not only sustains marine life; it quintessentially supports a mammoth amount of the economy in America. Fisheries, tourism, and recreation all depend on the ocean for its resources. Without it, billions of dollars are at stake and the delicate dance of the economy’s balance is at risk. The ocean needs to be treated with greater care and maintenance by all. This natural resource not only allows our society to thrive monetarily, it circulates the water and energy that regulate climate and weather.
The ocean is no longer viewed as a limitless resource, and the oceans are in crisis. In just seventeen years, nitrogen outputs into the ocean will have doubled since 1960 jeopardizing a plethora of coral reefs and species of fish. The demand for protecting this natural resource has reached a breaking point and ocean management needs to be a standard set by all. Taking steps now can ensure preservation of our living ocean for centuries and centuries ahead.
“Leading Edge with Jimmy Johnson” will educate viewers on protecting our oceans. The “Leading Edge” series will also feature marine biologists, fishermen, and tourism experts to hone in on their personal experience with marine life.
The series is distributed to Public Television stations throughout the United States and is not distributed through PBS. Please visit the Leading Edge website at http://www.leadingedgeseries.com or email the producers at info(at)leadingedgeseries(dot)com for more information.
