Big Sustainability Month on the North Shore

We had to let you know that there's a worldclass speaker coming up at the North Shore Tech Council September 19. Big month. Rob Day at the Forum on Sept. 5. Dr. Carl Safina two weeks later.

You may’ve seen his "Saving the Ocean" series on PBS.  Or something else. Carl Safina has been profiled in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, and on Nightline; National Public Radio; Democracy Now; Bill Moyers’ special Earth on Edge; Martha Stewart; and not least: The Colbert Report.

Safina is author of 6 books and roughly 200 scientific and popular publications, including features in The New York Times, and National Geographic and a new Foreword to Rachel Carson’s The Sea Around Us.

His first book, Song for the Blue Ocean, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
Eye of the Albatross won the John Burroughs Medal and the National Academies’ Science Communication Award for year’s Best Book.

Voyage of the Turtle was a N.Y. Times Editors’ Choice. So was The View From Lazy Point; A Natural Year in an Unnatural World, which won the 2012 Orion Award.

Safina is founding president of Blue Ocean Institute at Stony Brook University, where he also co-chairs the University’s Center for Communicating Science.
