June 2010 is National Oceans Month (NOM)

“NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim June 2010 as National Oceans Month.  I call upon Americans to learn more about what they can do to protect, conserve, sustain, and enjoy our oceans, coasts, and Great Lakes.”

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

So, June is National Oceans Month (NOM). What does this mean for Beach Chair Scientist? In the month of June I am challenging myself to write 30 entries. Today is June 3 so I am already two days behind. Throughout the month I will bring simple, insightful and entertaining ways to learn to take President Obama’s advice to “protect, conserve, sustain, and enjoy our oceans, coasts, and Great Lakes.” Sounds fun, right?

I am committed to keeping a positive spin on the 30 NOM posts. I will not dwell on the oil spill. But, it would be irresponsible if I did not mention it. The only positive light I can see with this oil spill is that it does hit home and therefore we (the American public) are forced to look for alternative forms of energy.
