1850th Stated Meeting - Monterey Bay Aquarium, Monterey, CA
Marcia K. McNutt (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute)
November 3, 2001
The 1850th Stated Meeting, under the auspices of the Western Center, will be held at the Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, California. It will feature a talk by Marcia McNutt, President and CEO of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.
Dr. McNutt will present a series of scenarios for man's intervention in the ocean which may end up helping or hurting mankind. New systems are already brining about a revolution in our ability to explore, experiment within, and ultimately understand Earth's last frontier: the ocean. The question is, whether we will be wise enough to avoid inadvertently destroying it. With man's intervention in the ocean will there be the intelligence to understand the implications of our actions, the humility to admit what we do not know, and the unselfishness to take the long-term view on what is the best policy for the planet.
