BETTER with Mark Brand

Dr. Sylvia Earle is a world-renowned oceanographer, marine biologist, and National Geographic Explorer in Residence affectionately known by her fellow scientists, and peers alike, as “Her Deepness.”  She has logged more than 7,000 hours underwater.  What struck me most when I first met Sylvia was her ability to deeply touch my spirit when we talked about the oceans.  In this episode, you’ll hear us talk about “our power to change the nature of nature,” as Sylvia says, “through our options.” We talk about the pace at which the planet is warming, our impact on the oceans, and how we can govern ourselves better to ensure they (and we) have more longevity to make our survival and prosperity possible.  WORKS- founder, Mission Blue, an organization dedicated to protecting the ocean from threats such as climate change, pollution, habitat destruction, invasive species, and the dramatic decrease in ocean fish stocks- founder, Sylvia Earle Alliance-author, National Geographic Ocean: A Global Odyssey- author, The World is Blue- author, Sea Change- author, Blue Hope: Exploring and Caring for Earth's Magnificent OceanTOOLS:- Knowledge that equips us to understand how we affect the ocean and how the ocean affects us - Historic and scientific evidence of our planet’s network of life—information that can empower us to look at Earth as a system and see what needs protecting and how - Appreciation for the planet to inspire sustainable change- How to apply for a Hope Spot and where- What we can do in our local communities to restore health to the oceans  LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT:

Sylvia Earle - OCEANS MATTER

Chatter that Matters

Sylvia Earle explains why the future of oceans matters. She joins the podcast this week to remind us of our collective power to use technology to change the depressing realities of the climate crisis.   TIME named Sylvia Earle as their first Hero of the Planet, and she has been National Geographic's Explorer in Residence since 1998. Sylvia is called ‘Her Deepness’ and the ‘Sturgeon General‘ by The New Yorker and The New York Times, a Living Legend by the Library of Congress, and a master storyteller by almost all that know her. She is my guest on my Chatter That Matters Earth Day Edition.    I begin the show by sharing news of my first Grandbaby, Maxwell Jude, and how it has made me question what type of planet he will inherit. I then interview Sylvia Earle, who will open your eyes to why Oceans and Ocean wildlife matters. She recounts her life of invention and ocean exploration, including her record-setting open-ocean JIM suit dive, untethered to 1250 feet and what she encountered on her walk on the ocean floor.    Sylvia discusses her new book National Geographic Ocean: A Global Odyssey about the power and significance of our planet's ocean from its fundamental importance in shaping our climate to how it supports a multitude of species, including humans.   Dr. Earle sees all of us as “the most important people who have ever lived on earth because technology is now giving us all the power to know, demand change, and to stop treating our oceans as a free grocery store and a garbage dump.   As a bonus feature, I talk about RBC's Tech for Nature, a global, $100 million-dollar multi-year commitment from the RBC Foundation to support new ideas and technologies that address the most complex environmental issues. Over 100 projects are already underway!   To connect with Dr. Sylvia Earle LI - linkedin.com/in/sylvia-earle-6931946 Twitter: @sylviaearle Mission Blue - https://mission-blue.org To order her new book - Global Odyssey - https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/books/national-geographic-ocean/9781426221927-item.html To chat with Tony Chapman:   Web:    https://chatterthatmatters.ca   Twitter – @TonyChapman – https://twitter.com/tonychapman   Linkedin – https://www.linkedin.com/in/tonychapmanreactions/   Instagram – https://www.instagram.com/chatterthatmatters/   Youtube – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcGvzmw9MFkUcGylrFA2xC       RBC - https://www.rbc.com   RBC Tech for Nature - https://www.rbc.com/community-social-impact/_assets-custom/pdf/RBC-Tech-For-Nature-EN.pdf https://www.rbc.com/community-social-impact/environment/environmental-donations.html

Sylvia Earle, Ph.D. - Marine Biologist. Ocean Explorer. Lecturer. President and Chairman Mission Blue. | EP32

Our Epic Ocean

Dr. Sylvia Earle is the founding President and Chairman of Mission Blue. She is a National Geographic Society Explorer in Residence and was dubbed Her Deepness by the New Yorker and New York Times. The Library of Congress made her a Living Legend and Time Magazine declared her the first Hero for the Planet. She was also the first female Chief Scientist of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (the NOAA).  She is an Ocean Elder, an oceanographer, explorer, author and lecturer.  In short Dr. Earle is a living legend.  Over the years Dr. Earle has brought her infinite wisdom and deep knowledge of how our planets works to both the professional world and the masses in books, films, numerous talks, lectures and interviews but one in particular stands out, from ten years ago, with the NRDC (the national resources defense council), where she said “Think of the Ocean as the blue Heart of the planet.  The part that makes the world work. Drives climate and weather. Generates most of the oxygen we breathe.  It drives our water cycle. It’s where 97% of the water is. This is our life support system and unless we really understand it and appreciate it, we are not going to take care of it. Knowing is the key”.   LEARN MORE ABOUT SYLVIA EARLE here:  Mission Blue Website: https://mission-blue.org/ Sylvia Earle Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sylvia_Earle Mission Blue News: https://mission-blue.org/in-the-news/ Sylvia Earle on Twitter: https://twitter.com/SylviaEarle Mission Blue on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mission_blue/?hl=en Mission Blue on Twitter: https://twitter.com/MissionBlue Hope Spots: https://mission-blue.org/hope-spots/ Youtube Mission Blue: https://www.youtube.com/user/missionbluecoalition Hashtag Sylviaearle : https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/sylviaearle/?hl=en Mission Blue Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1wp2MQCsfQ TED 2009: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43DuLcBFxoY Google Earth Explore the Ocean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BpSO5kN8-4 Nat Geo: : https://www.nationalgeographic.com/impact/article/sylvia-earle-protecting-exploring-ocean The Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2021/jun/12/were-causing-our-own-misery-oceanographer-sylvia-earle-on-the-need-for-sea-conservation Time Inc: https://time.com/6114248/sylvia-earle-10-questions/ Achiever Awards: https://achievement.org/achiever/sylvia-earle/ UNEP: https://www.unep.org/championsofearth/laureates/2014/sylvia-earle On Being Interview: https://onbeing.org/programs/sylvia-earle-her-deepness-feb2018/ Donate to Mission Blue: https://mission-blue.networkforgood.com/projects/66908-2019-donation-drive “Sharks are beautiful animals, and if you're lucky enough to see lots of them, that means that you're in a healthy ocean.

S2 E13 - In Conversation with Dr Sylvia Earle

The Art Of Conservation

No discussion about the state of our planet, most notably our oceans, is complete without the inclusion of Her Deepness, Dr Sylvia Earle. For more than half a century Sylvia has been one of the loudest and most articulate voices of reason and science in the pursuit to not only protect and correct the state of the ocean, but also in inspiring others to do the same.In this episode, Simon and Sylvia discuss her latest book, a collaboration with the National Geographic Society entitled “Ocean, A Global Odyssey”. The conversation also explores the great “Anthropause”, the state of our oceans, the advancement of women in ocean conservation, the power of conscious consumerism, what we can learn from indigenous communities - and what we can teach them, and why there is cause for great optimism. Sylvia’s Mission Blue organization remains on the up and is truly worth supporting, especially the identifying and protecting of the world’s Hope Spots.
