From Consumption to Utility

In our capitalist society we can look to the sea for places where we seek wealth through natural resources. We consume oil, gas, energy, coastal wetlands, marine species and minerals at the core of the supply system on which we all rely. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will discuss this system, which does on occasion fail us, if we don't fail it first. And he'll ask, "By what measure might we take to make this different?" and, "What are we doing when we take resources without care or concern for their integrity or longevity simply to benefit ourselves?"  


Peter Neill, Director of the W2O and host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects. World Ocean Radio, a project of the World Ocean Observatory, is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays available for syndicated use at no cost by community radio stations worldwide.
