Being a C-Span Junkie I had the privilege this morning of watching 
John Bruno on C-Span's Washington Journal program. John was on for a 
full hour discussing the recently released world view maps of human 
impacts on the oceans. During his hour he did an excellent job of 
fielding a variety of questions (phoned in) from people all across 
the country. It also provided a forum for him to describe the plight 
of Florida's reefs, effects of MPAs, and  overfishing in the 
Caribbean and a host of other questions including one form a person 
who accused him of being a dupe of a communists plot to globalize the 
oceans. He handled it very politely. Once again you can view what was 
discussed at <http://knb.ecoinformatics.org/GlobalMarine/>   I 
suspect this will lead to several visits to Congress. Well done John.
