Book Nook: The Death and Life of Monterey Bay, Dr. Stephen Palumbi and Carolyn Sotka
Human beings put a lot of stress on the natural world. Our environment is adversely impacted by the pollution that we create and the animal and plant species that we have pushed to the brink of extinction.
Fortunately there are still occasions to celebrate good news about our natural world. A new book, "The Death and Life of Monterey Bay: A Story of Revival," is the story of how a pristine wonder of nature, Monterey Bay, California, was practically ruined by over-fishing and pollution and how that degradation has slowly been reversed,
In this interview the book's co-author Steve Palumbi describes the history of the area, how things finally got turned around and what ultimately caused this wonder of nature to be restored. This is a feel-good story that will leave you smiling.
