An Ocean Irony

In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will discuss the stark juxtaposition of two ocean stories, extreme in their differences, linked in unexpected, oppositional ways. The first example is a race for the world's first underwater luxury hotel; the second is a story of floating schools in Bangladesh serving 70,000 children affected by their changing, watery environment.


Peter Neill, 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 brief audio essays available for syndicated use at no cost by community radio stations worldwide.
