Sylvia Earle has spent much of her 74 years exploring the oceans. Here at a talk filmed by The Brisbane Institute, co-hosted by the Australian Marine Conservation Society, she takes us into the depths and mysteries of the world's oceans, sharing some memories of her extraordinary scientific pursuits as well as offering some serious warnings about why we need to act now to save the oceans.
Sylvia Alice Earle is an American oceanographer. She was chief scientist for the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration from 1990-1992. She is a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, sometimes called "Her Deepness" or "The Sturgeon General".
Earle received a B.S. degree from Florida State University (1955), M.S. (1956) and PhD. from Duke University (1966). She was Curator of Phycology at the California Academy of Sciences (1979-1986) and a Research Associate at the University of California, Berkeley (1969-1981), Radcliff Institute Scholar (1967-1969) and Research Fellow or Associate at Harvard University (1967-1981). She led the first team of women aquanauts during the Tektite Project in 1970.
Earle has led more than 60 expeditions worldwide involving in excess of 7000 hours underwater in connection with her research. From 1998 to 2002 she led the Sustainable Seas Expeditions, a five year program to study the United States National Marine Sanctuary sponsored by the National Geographic Society and funded by the Goldman Foundation. An expert on the impact of oil spills, she was called upon to lead several research trips during the Gulf War and following the spills of the ships, Exxon Valdez and Mega Borg.
She is the author of more than 125 publications concerning marine science and technology including the books Exploring the Deep Frontier, Sea Change (1995), Wild Ocean: America's Parks Under the Sea (1999) and The Atlas of the Ocean (2001), she has participated in numerous television productions and given scientific, technical, and general interest lectures in more than 60 countries.
I listened to your talk David and I also listened to Sylvia Earle's talk on the Oceans. I am so impressed with what you both have to say and the perspectives you bring to public awareness. I really learned a lot from both lectures.
What I really want to bring to public awareness is the obvious matter of "Receding Seas". Although you have studied the sea and oceans for a lifetime you have not observed that sea levels are receding. This statement is not meant to be controversial: it's factual. I would like the opportunity to give a talk on Receding Seas to FORA. I would like to be able to make my contribution on this most important scientific anomaly: "Receding Seas". It is perhaps the most important disclosure of this Millinneum. www.widemargin2000.com; Richard Guy

Richard Guy; Speaker/ Lecturer/ Author/ Structural Engineer.
PROFILE: Richard Guy is a Structural Engineer with related experience in many responsibilities and locations in the Old and New Worlds. His observations regarding sea levels have attracted interest from a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines. His theories explaining earth and marine phenomena, their causes and consequences are startling in their perception and originality.
BOOKS: Richard Guy has created a trilogy of books producing new concepts in Earth Sciences. His first book “Is Planet Earth Expanding?" presents his hypothesis.
His second Book “The Mysterious Receding Seas” deals with the seeming dichotomy of the Earth's distension and marine movements.
His third book “The Ascent of Man: Downhill all the Way” identifies the earth's anomalies as assisting engines of geological modeling and civilizations from ancient times to the present.
BOOK REVIEWS: "The work is thoroughly researched. It contributes significantly to the current stock of knowledge in the areas of Structural Engineering, Earth Sciences, navigation of the High Seas, and a plethora of technical areas". Dr Joseph S. Maresca, CPA, New York
“An interesting and intriguing read, "The Mysterious Receding Seas" is a top pick for any Environmental Studies collection with a focus on History. This book should be in the school curriculum: Midwest Book Review
