WINGS

The deep sea floor has become a high­ly con­test­ed region of the world. Min­ing com­pa­nies are eager to scrape up some­thing called nod­ules” that con­tain var­i­ous min­er­als in high demand. Deep sea explor­ers and oth­er envi­ron­men­tal­ly con­scious peo­ple are ter­ri­fied about what dam­age that could cause not only to the oceans and its inhab­i­tants, but to the cli­mate of the earth. One of the world’s most knowl­edge­able per­sons about the ocean floor — and avid oppo­nent of Deep Sea Min­ing — is long­time deep sea explor­er Sylvia Ear­le. In June 2023, she appeared for a Fire­side Chat with John Ver­mi­lye of Mis­sion Blue, at the Explor­ers Club. Includes sound track of a short film for which Ear­le col­lab­o­rat­ed with famed cel­list YoYo Ma. She gives impor­tant infor­ma­tion about fish and farming.
