Description

Obviously, this book highlights the impact that humans have had on the oceans and how they are deteriorating.

A autora, geofísica de formação, apresenta uma forma muito peculiar de descrever as características físicas, geológicas e biológicas do oceanos. It brings other cultures and their history to the table and gives the reader the chance to see the differences between then and now.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Through stories of history, culture, and animals, she explains how water temperature, salinity, gravity, and the movement of Earth’s tectonic plates all interact in a complex dance, supporting life at the smallest scale—plankton—and the largest—giant sea turtles, whales, humankind. She has been a science columnist for the Wall Street Journal since 2017 and she is the author of the bestselling Storm in a Teacup: The Physics of Everyday Life , Bubbles: A Ladybird Expert Book, and Blue Machine: how the ocean shapes our world . Wide-ranging and meticulously detailed, this captures the wonder, beauty, and intrigue of its subject. Drawing on years of experience at the forefront of marine science, Helen Czerski captures the magnitude and subtlety of this complex force, showing us the thrilling extent to which we are at the mercy of this great engine.

I thought this book was so well laid out and explained and I definitely closed the book at the end knowing I knew more now than I did before. A catastrophe for catastrophists perhaps, but most people would consider more life in the oceans actually a good thing.

Deftly harnessing the trade winds of history and geography, guiding us through eddies and currents of anecdote, [Czerski] leaves us with an understanding of the complexity of the oceans. All of the Earth's ocean, from the equator to the poles, is a single engine powered by sunlight - a blue machine. Part 2 is "Travelling the Blue Machine" This looks at life in the oceans and on the oceans and has 3 sections covering, messengers, passengers and voyagers. We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed.
