Clean Energy Momentum

The clean energy race is going full bore.  Two sweet points to keep your feet moving:

2011 was the first year in which global investment in renewable energy was greater than investment in fossil fuel power plants.

When you put the investments of all countries together, renewable energy in 2011 grew by 5% over the last year to $260 billion, a five-fold increase since 2004," according to Clean Technica.

This is great news for the oceans and anyone who likes the oceans.  Burning fossil fuels and stuffing the atmosphere with carbon pollution makes ocean water more acidic and hotter, both of which are bad news for marine life including the fish we eat and the reefs we awe at.
