This week we continue the Earth Optimism Series, a 24-episode project in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution's Ocean Portal, to celebrate ocean solutions and innovative projects in the context of the Earth Optimism Summit, April 2017. In this episode, we discuss two examples of innovative practices and their relationships to each another: 1. ocean research and data collection and the connection to geothermal energy generation, and 2. offshore wind energy and its relationship to desalination plants, which require high volumes of energy to operate.

In this New Year’s episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill details a number of sacred places around the globe--on islands, along the shore, on the banks of rivers, lakes and streams--and the allies that these spaces have found in protective movements, enforcement, and international action. He outlines the relationship of biodiverse regions around the world to their sacred and scientific importance, and how conservation justifies protection while simultaneously meeting the goals of religionists and conservationists alike.

At each year's end, World Ocean Radio host Peter Neill reads "At The Fishhouses" by Elizabeth Bishop. This perennial favorite poem was chosen not only for its relevance for the New Year, but also because it distills years of Bishop's seaside meditations and evokes the clarity of meaning contained in personal encounters with the world ocean.

Best wishes for the New Year from the World Ocean Observatory.
