editors note Saving the Ocean Planet We live on a water world, the only such
planet in the solar system. From time immemorial, we have been fed by the sea,
navigated it, feared its power, and marveled at the magically diverse life harbored
there. The sea covers two-thirds of Earth's surface but provides more than 99
percent of Earth's actual living space. ... I hope you enjoy this Ocean Planet issue
and that it helps give you new insights into our planet's most precious resource.

Madly affected with a fever to produce more and more technologically advanced
foods at whatever cost to the Earth's resources, including people, mankind
crashes blindly on down suicide avenue. The end is not far off and if a halt is not
called, the Earth will die and die horribly. That, in a nutshell is Bellini's message
and even that is incomplete , for there is no mention of more recent terrors, such
