Publisher's Note: How many of the solutions we currently envision - and often enough give up, upon achieving - address only the land? For we land-dwellers, it isn't hard to forget that we came from the ocean, that the planet is mostly water, that we wouldn't survive a minute without the ocean's continuing role in our biology. 


This week, we have asked Don Pickering, CEO of startup OneOcean, to share his thoughts about the planet from an ocean perspective. When you're finished reading this week's Special Letter, I hope that each one of you thinks a bit more about the global, contiguous environment of the seas, and has that much better an understanding that we can't create a sustainable planetary life model without a healthy ocean. - mra.
