Product description


"I recommended this book to all my friends and co-workers, no matter what their background; the book speaks to everyone and provides guidance on how we can take steps at home and in our workplace to start initiating this change. The book had a deep impact on me personally; I have started to do more to play my part and have included my son on our journey towards contributing to a new hydraulic society." Mireille Chiasson, Regional Manager, Oceans Management & Ecosystem Management, Fisheries and Oceans, Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada"

"In the spirit of Rachel Carson s "The Sea Around Us," Neill not only raises concern for our rapidly deteriorating marine environment, but also offer the concept of a 'New hydraulic society' and its great potential for a world looking for an alternative solution. Dr. Paul Mayewski, Director, Climate Change Institute, University of Maine"

"We live on an ocean planet, though most of us rarely remember it; that blindness is one of the reasons we've stood by as the seas acidified, one of the great environmental crises in human history. This powerful book reminds us that our maritime identity is one important way we can start rebuilding a damaged planet. Bill McKibben, author, "Eaarth"; founder,"

"This book represents an interesting and important contribution for a better public awareness of the great importance of the Oceans and Water itself for the survival of our Planet. It is essential to change into a new development paradigm, based on the values of sustainability and democracy." Mario Soares, Chair, Independent World Commission on the Future of the Oceans"
