Short video about book exploring California’s bond with the Pacific Ocean

Leave a comment

California without the Pacific ocean would be…well, Nevada.

Bay Area author and environmental activist Dave Helvarg makes this point – with humor, facts, and examples – in his 2013 book The Golden Shore – California’s Love Affair with the Sea, which looks at such diverse factors as the commercial ports, the Navy, the ecology, and tourism to understand our bond. See this short video promoting his message of hope about our state’s record in doing the right thing for our coastline and ocean. [LMC]
