The earth planet shouldn't be called earth, it should be called planet ocean!
Oceans cover approximately 75% of the world's surface and without them the earth would die. The oceans sustain the life on this planet and are essential to our health.
The health of our oceans is being compromised by accelerated human disturbances such as over fishing, pollution, global warming and other environmental factors making the health of our oceans a very serious cause for concern.

For a more detailed analysis on the health of our oceans please watch additional videos on my blog on my profile.
