5.0 out of 5 stars Great read for anyone interested in the oceans, 22 Jan. 2010
By 
This review is from: Seasick: The Hidden Ecological Crisis of the Global Ocean (Paperback)
My interest in the sea has come from a general environmental awareness and a mild obsession with the fact that the human race is busy wiping out all the fish in the oceans and seas through over-fishing. Anyway, so when I saw Seasick in a bookshop I grabbed it.
Anyone vaguely interested in the environment, global warming and the oceans should read this great book. It is first and foremost an easy read, so although it covers many scientifically contentious issues it is not fighting an academic battle that would make it a hard slog to get through. What it does do is paint a terrifying picture of what is happening to the oceans, and probably the planet in a measured and unassuming but investigative style. By using anecdotal evidence and the covering the views of scientists trying to work out what is happening to the oceans you are left to contemplate the potential impact on the planet that will occur. It is clear that climate change and human pollution is damaging the oceans and we don't really understand what the real impact will be.
You are left at the end of this book to make up your own mind, which has rather scary consequences.
