Listen to Lloyd

Don't take my word for it (though I'll keep pestering) -- the ocean has value that transcends ecosystem services and economics and all that stuff.  It's good for the soul!

In a story about a barely touched part of the Florida keys:

"Decades later, the ocean waters, translucent and shallow, remain a playground for lobster, fish, sharks and coral. Mahogany, buttonwood, gumbo-limbo and mangrove trees abound.

"'You can get the hell out there and restore the soul,' said Lloyd Miller, 91, who lives not too far away in Homestead and helped lead the fight to preserve the pristine archipelago," according to the New York Times.

That's 91 years of ocean love talking.  Thanks Lloyd.
