The world is comprised of 70 percent water. And 97 percent of the water that comprises the Earth are made up of the oceans. In recognition of June 8 being World Oceans Day, and because so much of our world is made up of ocean water, we have to make efforts to protect that fragile environment.
World Oceans Day joins people from all over the world to celebrate and encourage public awareness towards protecting our oceans. It seems with each advancement in technology humans also increase pollution or negatively impact our environment and oceans in some way. World Oceans Day is here to remind us to take care of our natural resources.
In addition to protecting the ocean for our wildlife and future generations, as a proponent of natural energy, think about how much power lies untapped in our oceans. The ocean is vast and the power that it produces from the waves, currents and tides are unimaginable. We have to protect that resource.
If companies succeed in fully harnessing the oceans as a source of energy, a lot of good could happen. We could reduce pollution output from energy creation via fossil fuels. We could create jobs. We could also produce a lot of energy that has a virtually endless supply as the oceans produce waves and currents naturally.
It is of utmost importance that we keep our oceans clean and healthy not only for us but for the future generations as well. By taking good care of the oceans today, future generations can reap the benefits of our vast oceans. No matter where you are from, you can help raise awareness of the importance of protecting our oceans this World Oceans Day. Indulge yourself in the world of the oceans. Share the information that you discover and you can help protect and make progress with our oceans.
