Choke Point: Confronting Energy Demand and Water Scarcity in China
 
01:57:40
China's soaring economy, fueled by an unyielding appetite for coal, is threatened by the country's steadily diminishing freshwater reserves. Even as China has launched enormous new programs of solar, wind, hydro, and nuclear power development, which tend to use much less water and generate much less carbon, energy demand will skyrocket and will primarily rely on supplies of coal, the source of 70 percent of the nation's energy. These are the conclusions from a comprehensive reporting project that was presented at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars on May 6, 2011. The Choke Point: China series, a joint project by the China Environment Forum and Michigan-based Circle of Blue, reveals never-before-reported narrative and facts about the increasingly fierce competition between energy and water that threatens to upend China's progress. At the event hosted by the China Environment Forum (CEF), Keith Schneider, Circle of Blue's senior editor, Jeremy Schreifels of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and Jeff Erikson, senior vice president of SustainAbility, discussed the domestic and global implications of China's rocketing coal-based energy demand, steadily diminishing freshwater supplies and the inexorable bond between the two. Next to agriculture, China's coal mining, processing, combustion, and coal-to-chemicals industries consume more water than any other industrial, municipal, or commercial sector. Currently, more than 70 percent of the nation's energy is generated from coal. By 2020, at least 500 gigawatts of new generating capacity, according to Chinese estimates, will be produced by coal. This coal boom is forcing China into a choke point; one where limited and polluted water supplies could constrain energy development and stymie economic growth.

Kelp Could Save Our Oceans — If You Eat It (HBO)
 
05:08
Up to eight feel below the ocean’s surface, former cod fisherman Bren Smith grows groves of a plant that he says could feed the planet and heal its oceans. “You know, for a fisherman it’s kind of weird to grow plants,” he said. “But this is the future.” Smith’s referring to kelp, a seaweed capable of soaking up five time more carbon than land-plants and filtering excess nitrogen out of the water. While popular in Asia, kelp rarely appears on American menus. But in Smith’s mind, kelp could become the new kale — and help reverse some of the dangerous effects of human-caused climate change. Smith farms his 20-acre ocean plot off the coast of Connecticut using a technique he calls “3D ocean farming,” which lets him grow various types of crops, such as oysters and mussels, on top of each other. That means his farm also functions as an artificial reef and attracts numerous species of fish and sea-dwelling birds. Despite kelp’s many environmental benefits, few North Americans have heard of it, and even less would think to cook with it. But Smith isn’t too worried about it. Google — which offers kelp to 6,000 employees in its New York City cafeteria — is already his largest customer.

Effect of Bauxite pollution on marine organism (Artemia sp.)
 
03:40
The red soil of bauxite is an ore for aluminum manufacture. MIning of the bauxite has become an environmental concerned issue in Pahang, Malaysia due to the occurrence of coastal pollution by the mined substance. On top to understand whether the residential effect bauxite pollution on marine life, a preliminary experiment had been conducted using the mined bauxite on Artemia sp. The result showed that the Artermia shrimp not only adhered with the bauxite soil, it also would ingest the bauxite particles. Bauxite pollution is not just "red sea" phenomenon, the observation in this experiment also raises the concern on health issue for the environment in future.

Technology proves a viable solution to South Africa mining problems
 
02:12
Science, research and development are usually uneasy bedfellows - often because identifying a need, getting the funding to develop a solution and then commercializing technologies that are developed, can often be at odds. Take South Africa's mining sector, for example. On one hand, there's an urgent need to fix decades of environmental damage. On the other, there are limited resources - from shareholders, and the state, to fix the issue. CGTN's Angelo Coppola, takes up the story.

China's Air Pollution: A Result of Regime's Wrestling with Nature
 
04:05
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews Following-up reports on China's air pollution. Beijing's Environment Monitoring Center predicted that on January 16, a cold front will help disperse air pollutants. Most city areas will have "good" air quality, and in some areas, it even can be classified as "excellent". So what happened in reality? Let's look at our report. Beijing resident, Ms. Wang, says that on 16th January, there was sun and no wind. But the sky was still hazy! Ms. Wang (Beijing resident): "Today the weather is getting slightly better. In the last few days, smog was particularly severe. Today is sunny. Ordinarily, we should have a clear line of sight. But it's still foggy now, visibility is only within 200 meters!" Gong Shengli, an expert on China issues, remarks that this is the thickest smog over the past 60 years. Snowing on 15th January helped filter out air pollutants, he says, otherwise, the situation would continue. Gong Shengli (Expert on China issues):"The growth in China's previous 30 years was based on industrial pollution emissions. Such as exploitation of oil and minerals, including gold mining. This had caused large-scale environment pollution in the past." German newspaper The Bild published a report, titled, "Smog-Alarm in Peking, China suffocated in its success?" The article states, China wants to grow, grow, grow. Environmental protection over there is deemed as a barrier. The smog is the flip side of China's rapid rise to a global economic power. Each day new factories are opening that consume more energy. Every week in China someone opens a new coal plant. Gong Shengli:"North China experienced hazy weather, while south China suffers from acidic pollutants. It may cause trees leaves to wither away. Guangdong suffers from the most severe acid rain. The long-term effect of acid rain would make it an unsuitable living place. The resulted environmental damage may lead to disasters that could not be restored even in 100 years." Gong Shengli adds that the damage caused by the Chinese Communist Party(CCP) rule is not limited to the natural environment. China's social and cultural environment was not immune, too. CCP Vice Premier Li Keqiang attended a meeting on Jan.15. He claimed to take actions on air pollution control. Dai Qing (Political & social observers): "Such as Beijing's water shortage. Can you shut down 20 golf courses to plant trees on that land? In reality, no one dares to offend those wealthy and privileged. I think if a premier has no such authority to do it, how can you govern the country?!" The latest issue of China Economic Weekly reported that less than 50% of domestic drinking water meets the standard. A former expert at Chinese Center for Disease Control & Prevention, with over 30 years water treatment experience, said that China's fresh water has become more scarce. Water shortage and groundwater over-exploitation affects the north. Water pollution has resulted in excessive nitrates in waters. In the south, lakes and rivers are enclosed to be used as aquaculture farms. It's common that the fodder contains excess levels of nitrogen and phosphorus. Dai Qing:"It's impossible to develop further, it's unsustainable, when China's coal reserves are exhausted and all trees cut down. In the north are water shortages, while in the south is water pollution. There's no way to sustain the growth, which has lost conditions to be the low-cost labor factories in the world. The country's natural resources have all been destroyed. I hold this view and have called for it for 20 years, but no one would listen to it ..." When hazy weather in China's central and eastern areas began to disperse, Shanghai's air quality index (AQI) suddenly soared on Jan. 16. The official data showed that on 11 a.m., the AQI level has reached 216, severely polluted. The PM2.5 level exceeded 248 micrograms per cubic meter. Zhang Junfeng, China's civil water expert, comments. Officials in China have only very superficial understanding of environmental damage and consequences. They are just wrestling with nature. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Water Dragon Alliance
 
05:50
Hundreds Attend Solidarity Rally Opposed to Coal Over 400 people showed up in Buckley Bay on Saturday, in support of a festive outdoor anti-coal rally called, "Solidarity -Not Compliance!" An entourage of almost 100 islanders accompanied a twenty foot-long Chinese New Year's dragon off the Denman ferry at 1:00 pm. Cheered on by folks attending from as far away as Vancouver, Victoria, Port Alberni and Campbell River, the dragon was greeted at the nearby rally site by musicians, and a giant raven bearing a placard that read, "Ravens opposed to Coal!" The event took place on the cusp of the Chinese lunar new year, celebrated in 2012 as the year of the water dragon. Rally organizers, the Water Dragon Alliance, recognized the dragon as representing boldness, perseverance, and the overcoming of obstacles in Chinese mythology. They introduced the dragon from Denman as a symbol of solidarity with the thousands of protestors demonstrating against the expansion of coal-fired plants in China, as well as with communities throughout the Vancouver Island region united in opposition to Compliance Energy Corporation's proposed underground Raven Coal Mine in nearby Fanny Bay. Nature was on side with blue skies and a little sunshine, providing a welcome break in a week of otherwise stormy winter weather. Baynes Sound oyster grower Bunny Shannon, addressed the crowd: "It's a no brainer. The impact of the proposed mine on the hundreds of sustainable jobs in our regional shellfish industry will be too great. "People may say we have always mined coal here. But we used to have slaves, we used to beat our wives," said Shannon. Des Kennedy, Denman resident, author, and environmental activist, noted that the name of the proposed Raven underground coal mine in Fanny Bay might be appropriate after all: "The word 'raven' is both a noun and a verb. As the latter, it also means to plunder, take by force, and to hunt for prey," Kennedy explained. Tria Donaldson, Pacific Coast Campaigner for the Wilderness Committee said: "The great turnout shows how much resistance this mine has all the way from Campbell River down to Victoria. There is no place for a dirty coal mine on a climate-friendly Vancouver Island!" Donaldson posed a question for Comox Valley MLA Don McRae, also the Minister of Agriculture, with aquaculture and the Baynes Sound shellfishery in his portfolio. "How many thousands of people in your riding will have to say NO to Raven Coal before you will stand up and join them?" Linda Safford, from Comox Valley Water Watch, spoke about the risks to drinking water in the Comox Valley and introduced a petition to oppose the proposed Raven mine. Ken Wu, Executive Director of Majority for a Sustainable Society (MASS) talked about coal as a global issue. "Climate change trumps all other environmental concerns," says Wu. "Wild salmon, old growth trees, everything will be lost if we don't solve climate change. It's the number-one threat facing our planet." The demo concluded with a photo shoot of hundreds of people assembled on the adjacent highway overpass above a forty foot banner reading, "Solidarity -No Coal!"

Heavy Ion Fusion
 
01:02:28
Google Tech Talk November 11th, 2010 Presented by Dr. Charles Helsley. Abstract: The limited supply and worldwide environmental effects of carbon-based fuels demand that a different source of energy be identified and tapped. This analysis applies to synthetic bio fuels as well as fossil fuels. The obvious candidates to supplant carbon-based fuels are solar conversion, wind generation, hydraulic generation, geothermal extraction, fission, and fusion. When scaled to the size necessary to satisfy the energy demands of the world, all except fusion have severe unmitigated environmental impacts, induce geopolitical instability, or exhibit very limited availability, reliability, and sustainability. Most technologies suffer from more than one of these drawbacks. The fusion of Deuterium and Tritium ("DT") to form Helium and a neutron is a well-known reaction that yields prodigious amounts of energy. Though sufficient fuel is available in seawater to sustain the global energy demand for millennia, we still need an engine capable of running the reaction. As of 2009, the search for such an engine has been going on for 6 decades and common wisdom says it is still 5 decades away. The problem is that the search has been concentrated on the 1 GW regime (the size of a normal large power plant). HIF is that engine now. What is not generally known is that a safe practical way to harness the isotope's of Hydrogen reaction was developed in the 1970's but abandoned because it was only economically viable at a very large scale. The process is known as High Energy Heavy Ion Fusion. Such a fusion power plant would produce about 100 GW of power rather than the 1 GW desired by the power industry. Three facilities would meet the total needs of California, allowing fission and fossil fuel generation to be cut back significantly Heavy Ion Fusion techology is more "ready to go" now than rocket technology was in 1961 when President Kennedy set the goal to go to the moon and back within the decade. The controlled ignition of DT provides a virtually unlimited source of energy. Fusion power can be on line in less than a decade. The energy produced by a single system is equivalent to a super giant oil field and will take about the same amount of time to come on line producing heat, electricity, hydrogen for synthetic fuel and water with a minimal carbon footprint. The life of HIF is thousands of years, while a giant oil field's life is only a few decades. Speaker Bio: Charles Helsley is a retired researcher at the University of Hawaii. He has lived in Hawaii for 32 years, was formerly the Director of the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and was the Director of the University of Hawaii Sea Grant College Program at the time of his retirement. He is an expert in energy matters, especially in oil and gas resources and is knowledgeable about the effects that the of burning carbon-based fuels has on the earths ocean and atmosphere. He has been involved in many fields of research, from paleomagnetism, to seismology, to marine geology and more recently in free electron laser research and in open ocean aquaculture research under the banner of the Hawaii Offshore Aquaculture Research Program (HOARP) of which he was the principal investigator. He has published more than 100 papers in scientific journals during his career and still publishes papers every few years. He holds BS and MS degrees in Geology from the California Institute of Technology and a PhD in Geology from Princeton University.

James McClintock 2/17/16  From Penguins to Plankton - Impacts of Climate Change on Antarctic
 
43:26
Full title: From Penguins to Plankton - The Impacts of Climate Change on Antarctic Marine Communities. About the Speaker Dr. James McClintock is the Endowed University Professor of Polar and Marine Biology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Since 1987, he has carried out fourteen NSF-supported research expeditions to the Antarctic continent to study aspects of marine invertebrate chemical ecology, reproduction, nutrition, and more recently, the impacts of climate warming and ocean acidification. Dr. McClintock has authored over 250 scientific papers. His recent books Lost Antarctica and A Naturalist Goes Fishing have garnered national and international media attention and fostered speaking engagements across Europe and North America. In 1989, the U.S. Board of Geographic Names designed “McClintock Point” on coastal continental Antarctica in honor of his contributions to Antarctic marine biology. Dr. McClintock is an elected Fellow of AAAS, a trustee for The Nature Conservancy, and on the Advisory Board of the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation. About the Lecture The eight hundred-mile long Antarctic Peninsula is currently one of the most rapidly warming regions of our planet. Eighty seven percent of the glaciers are currently in recession and over the past thirty years there have been eight major break-outs of coastal ice sheets. As the ice sheets disintegrate they release land-born ice flowing seaward, contributing to global sea level rise. Marine life including Adelie penguins, Weddell seals, and krill, whose ecology is tied to the sea ice, are being challenged. Other marine life including elephant seals, fur seals, and deep sea king crabs, are extending their ranges into Antarctica with the potential to rewrite the structure of the marine communities. Ocean acidification is adding further stress to life in the Southern Ocean. Despite these dramatic challenges, there is hope for a better future. The discovery and mitigation of the hole in the ozone over Antarctica provides a model for addressing anthropogenic climate change.

Wheelwright Prize Lecture: Jose Ahedo, “Domesticated Grounds”
 
01:12:36
Jose Ahedo established his own firm, Studio Ahedo, in 2010. His first completed project is Blanca, a dairy complex of thirteen buildings in the Pyrenees, including animal facilities, research labs, and an education center. Ahedo is also designing residential projects and he has consulted on graphic design, branding, and software development. In his lecture, he will speak about his project “Domesticated Grounds: Design and Domesticity Within Animal Farming Systems,” for which he won the 2014 Wheelwright Prize from Harvard GSD. Based on travel to remote rural areas in eight countries on four continents, “Domesticated Grounds” explores design and domesticity surrounding animal-farming operations. His trip of more than 8,500 miles over dusty and muddy roads has raised questions regarding our cultural and architectural heritage, infrastructural and territorial policies, landscape design, technological advancements, and gender and social issues associated with animal production. The goal of the investigation, through visits and interviews with some two hundred families, university technicians, scientists, local governments, and policy makers, is to demystify the current plight of various farming communities and seek opportunities for designers to take action in one of the most asymmetrical economic sectors.

Hydroelectricity
 
25:02
Hydroelectricity is the term referring to electricity generated by hydropower; the production of electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water. It is the most widely used form of renewable energy, accounting for 16 percent of global electricity generation -- 3,427 terawatt-hours of electricity production in 2010, and is expected to increase about 3.1% each year for the next 25 years. Hydropower is produced in 150 countries, with the Asia-Pacific region generating 32 percent of global hydropower in 2010. China is the largest hydroelectricity producer, with 721 terawatt-hours of production in 2010, representing around 17 percent of domestic electricity use. There are now four hydroelectricity plants larger than 10 GW: the Three Gorges Dam and Xiluodu Dam in China, Itaipu Dam across the Brazil/Paraguay border, and Guri Dam in Venezuela.

This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Thailand Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ In case you don't find one that you were looking for, put a comment. This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= Thailand ( TY-land), officially the Kingdom of Thailand and formerly known as Siam, is a country at the center of the Southeast Asian Indochinese peninsula composed of 76 provinces. At 513,120 km2 (198,120 sq mi) and over 68 million people, Thailand is the world's 50th largest country by total area and the 21st-most-populous country. The capital and largest city is Bangkok, a special administrative area. Thailand is bordered to the north by Myanmar and Laos, to the east by Laos and Cambodia, to the south by the Gulf of Thailand and Malaysia, and to the west by the Andaman Sea and the southern extremity of Myanmar. Its maritime boundaries include Vietnam in the Gulf of Thailand to the southeast, and Indonesia and India on the Andaman Sea to the southwest. Although nominally a constitutional monarchy and parliamentary democracy, the most recent coup in 2014 established a de facto military dictatorship. Tai peoples migrated from southwestern China to mainland Southeast Asia from the 11th century; the oldest known mention of their presence in the region by the exonym Siamese dates to the 12th century. Various Indianised kingdoms such as the Mon, the Khmer Empire and Malay states ruled the region, competing with Thai states such as Ngoenyang, the Sukhothai Kingdom, Lan Na and the Ayutthaya Kingdom, which rivaled each other. European contact began in 1511 with a Portuguese diplomatic mission to Ayutthaya, one of the great powers in the region. Ayutthaya reached its peak during cosmopolitan Narai's reign (1656–88), gradually declining thereafter until being ultimately destroyed in 1767 in a war with Burma. Taksin quickly reunified the fragmented territory and established the short-lived Thonburi Kingdom. He was succeeded in 1782 by Buddha Yodfa Chulaloke, the first monarch of the Chakri dynasty and founder of the Rattanakosin Kingdom, which lasted into the early 20th century. Through the 18th and 19th centuries, Siam faced pressure from France and the United Kingdom, including forced concessions of territory, but nevertheless it remained the only Southeast Asian country to avoid direct Western rule. Following a bloodless revolution in 1932, Siam became a constitutional monarchy and changed its official name to "Thailand". While it joined the Allies in World War I, Thailand was an Axis satellite in World War II. In the late 1950s, a military coup revived the monarchy's historically influential role in politics. Thailand became a major ally of the United States and played a key anti-communist role in the region. Apart from a brief period of parliamentary democracy in the mid 1970s, Thailand has periodically alternated between democracy and military rule. In the 21st century, Thailand endured a political crisis that culminated in two coups and the establishment of its current and 20th constitution by the military junta. Thailand is a unitary parliamentary constitutional monarchy under a military junta. Thailand is a founding member of Association of Southeast Asian Nations and remains a major ally of the US. Despite its comparatively sporadic changes in leadership, it is considered a regional power in Southeast Asia and a middle power in global affairs. With a high level of human development, the second largest economy in Southeast Asia, and the 20th largest by PPP, Thailand is classified as a newly industrialized economy; manufacturing, agriculture, and tourism are leading sectors of the economy.

Presented by Pamela Yost, Watershed Economist, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, Morgantown, WV. View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. The objective of this webinar is to share information and lessons learned from an innovative flood protection project. This webinar will describe how the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service offered a voluntary floodplain buyout for a flood-prone, economically distressed community. This unique approach prevents future flooding problems where dams, channels, and floodproofing may either be more expensive or not physically possible. One hundred properties have been purchased so far. Buildings were removed and the area was returned to natural floodplain. Participate in this webinar to learn more about this project and how it can apply to your local situations.

SUMMARY ======= Indonesia ( ( listen) IN-də-NEE-zhə, -zee-ə; Indonesian: [ɪndoneˈsia]), officially the Republic of Indonesia (Indonesian: Republik Indonesia [rɛpublik ɪndoneˈsia]), is a sovereign state in Southeast Asia, between the Indian and Pacific oceans. It is the world's largest island country, with more than thirteen thousand islands, and at 1,904,569 square kilometres (735,358 square miles), the 14th largest by land area and the 7th largest in combined sea and land area. With over 261 million people, it is the world's 4th most populous country as well as the most populous Muslim-majority country. Java, the world's most populous island, contains more than half of the country's population. Indonesia is a republic with an elected parliament and president. It has 34 provinces, of which five have special status. Jakarta, the country's capital, is the second most populous urban area in the world. The country shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and the eastern part of Malaysia. Other neighbouring countries include Singapore, Vietnam, the Philippines, Australia, Palau, and India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia has vast areas of wilderness that support a high level of biodiversity. The country has abundant natural resources like oil and natural gas, tin, copper and gold. Agriculture mainly produces rice, palm oil, tea, coffee, cacao, medicinal plants, spices and rubber. Indonesia's major trading partners are China, the United States, Japan, Singapore and India.The Indonesian archipelago has been an important region for trade since at least the 7th century, when Srivijaya and then later Majapahit traded with Chinese dynasties and Indian kingdoms. Local rulers gradually absorbed foreign cultural, religious and political models from the early centuries CE, and Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms flourished. Indonesian history has been influenced by foreign powers drawn to its natural resources. Muslim traders and Sufi scholars brought Islam, while European powers brought Christianity and fought one another to monopolise trade in the Spice Islands of Maluku during the Age of Discovery. Indonesia experienced a long period of Dutch colonialism that started from Amboina and Batavia, eventually covering all of the archipelago including Timor and Western New Guinea, and at times interrupted by Portuguese, French and British rule. During the decolonisation of Asia after World War II, Indonesia achieved independence in 1949 following an armed and diplomatic conflict with the Netherlands. Indonesia consists of hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups, with the largest—and politically dominant—ethnic group being the Javanese. A shared identity has developed, defined by a national language, ethnic diversity, religious pluralism within a Muslim-majority population, and a history of colonialism and rebellion against it. Indonesia's national motto, "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" ("Unity in Diversity" literally, "many, yet one"), articulates the diversity that shapes the country. Indonesia's economy is the world's 16th largest by nominal GDP and the 7th largest by GDP at PPP. Indonesia is a member of several multilateral organisations, including the UN, WTO, IMF and G20. It is also a founding member of Non-Aligned Movement, Association of Southeast Asian Nations, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, East Asia Summit, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= The sea, the world ocean or simply the ocean is the connected body of salty water that covers over 70 percent of the Earth's surface. It moderates the Earth's climate and has important roles in the water cycle, carbon cycle, and nitrogen cycle. It has been travelled and explored since ancient times, while the scientific study of the sea—oceanography—dates broadly from the voyages of Captain James Cook to explore the Pacific Ocean between 1768 and 1779. The word "sea" is also used to denote smaller, partly landlocked sections of the ocean. The most abundant solid dissolved in sea water is sodium chloride. The water also contains salts of magnesium, calcium, and potassium, amongst many other elements, some in minute concentrations. Salinity varies widely, being lower near the surface and the mouths of large rivers and higher in the depths of the ocean; however the relative proportions of dissolved salts varies little across the oceans. Winds blowing over the surface of the sea produce waves, which break when they enter shallow water. Winds also create surface currents through friction, setting up slow but stable circulations of water throughout the oceans. The directions of the circulation are governed by factors including the shapes of the continents and the rotation of the earth (the Coriolis effect). Deep-sea currents, known as the global conveyor belt, carry cold water from near the poles to every ocean. Tides, the generally twice-daily rise and fall of sea levels, are caused by the rotation of the Earth and the gravitational effects of the orbiting Moon, and to a lesser extent of the Sun. Tides may have a very high range in bays or estuaries. Submarine earthquakes arising from tectonic plate movements under the oceans can lead to destructive tsunamis, as can volcanoes, huge landslides or the impact of large meteorites. A wide variety of organisms, including bacteria, protists, algae, plants, fungi and animals, live in the sea, which offers a wide range of marine habitats and ecosystems, ranging vertically from the sunlit surface waters and the shoreline to the enormous depths and pressures of the cold, dark abyssal zone, and in latitude from the cold waters under the Arctic ice to the colourful diversity of coral reefs in tropical regions. Many of the major groups of organisms evolved in the sea and life may have started there. The sea provides substantial supplies of food for humans, mainly fish, but also shellfish, mammals and seaweed, whether caught by fishermen or farmed underwater. Other human uses of the sea include trade, travel, mineral extraction, power generation, warfare, and leisure activities such as swimming, sailing and scuba diving. Many of these activities create marine pollution. The sea is important in human culture, with major appearances in literature at least since Homer's Odyssey, in marine art, in cinema, in theatre and in classical music. Symbolically, the sea appears as monsters such as Scylla in mythology and represents the unconscious mind in dream interpretation.
