Summary: In Our Sacred Ocean author Victor Hummert combines scientific data with moving anecdotes from his experience as clergyman, world traveler and activist, prison chaplain, and skilled poet and storyteller. While identifying global human-caused dangers to ocean well-being, essential to human and non-human animal health, the author most often calls on his twenty-year experience in ocean-sided Louisiana and specifically New Orleans and Lafayette. In the context of global warming due to excessive fossil-fuel usage, he cites also technological trashing acidifying the ocean possibly beyond repair. Jellyfish he perceives as major contributors to ocean poisoning and extinction of fish indispensable to an adequate food supply for increasing billions of human as well as non-human consumers.

Riassunto: In Our Sacred Ocean author Victor Hummert combines scientific data with moving anecdotes from his experience as clergyman, world traveler and activist, prison chaplain, and skilled poet and storyteller. While identifying global human-caused dangers to ocean well-being, essential to human and non-human animal health, the author most often calls on his twenty-year experience in ocean-sided Louisiana and specifically New Orleans and Lafayette. In the context of global warming due to excessive fossil-fuel usage, he cites also technological trashing acidifying the ocean possibly beyond repair. Jellyfish he perceives as major contributors to ocean poisoning and extinction of fish indispensable to an adequate food supply for increasing billions of human as well as non-human consumers.

Dall'autore: As this book is being written and ready for publishing by my friends, I eagerly await Pope Francis' encyclical (letter to the world) , tentatively entitled,

" The Ecology of Mankind," a phrase used by Pope Benedict to describe not only how people must defend and respect nature but how the nature of the person - masculine and feminine as created by God - must also be defended," according to Vatican Radio. ( CWN - January 27, 2014)

It should be released in 2014 and will certainly be a positive message to share with all the world concerning the Environment!
 
I continue writing out of concern for future generations who must survive in a sweltering climate and will not enjoy birds or gifts of nature that were mine since childhood.

Following the 2013 appearance  of Fourth Quarter Haiku  I decided to just write occasional guest columns about Earth care for the Lafayette DAILY ADVERTISER. Lafayette, many know is called "Oil City". It is the "Hub City" for thousands of oil rigs in the Gulf. The "oil patch" is served by Petroleum Helicopters International (PHI), supposedly with the largest fleet of helicopters in the world. When hurricanes come, workers must be snatched from the oil rigs and brought back to shore safely.  Drilling for oil continues daily in the Gulf of Mexico. Gulf coast politicians are beholden to energy corporations.

As Earth sends more powerful messages in the form of "weather events" globally, someone could keep reminding oil and gas CEO's that solar, wind, and other sources of energy must eventually replace fossil fuels.  Mark Jacobson, a professor in Stanford University was invited by David Letterman one night to explain there is enough solar, wind, and other renewable energy sources to power the planet. Letterman was convinced and saw immediately where the resistance would be found.
 
How do we convince energy moguls of this fact when billions of dollars are at stake? Is oil a global addiction also?
                  
If we do not change sources of energy  eventually, children of today will be  trapped in a  future replete with catastrophic occurrences such as  Katrina, (New Orleans - 2005) Irene (2011) and Sandy (2012), both hitting NYC and the Atlantic coast as wrath of nature. Disastrous storms are beginning to fade from Louisiana memories in 2014. The Weather Channel (October 29, 2013) estimated Katrina's damage to be $80 billion. On the anniversary of hurricane Sandy, Weather Channel reporters concluded 300,000 homes were damaged or destroyed in New Jersey and 300,000 were hit in New York City. NYC officials in 2013 have placed huge inflatable tubes in the subway system that will expand to prevent water from flooding the subway system.

Automatic floodgates elsewhere will pop up to prevent another storm from entering the subway entrances. However, there are vents on NYC streets that will allow water to enter. Saltwater coming into contact with the electric tracks will wreak much damage. Nature, as always, will have the last word. The latest "word" from nature arrived (November 2013) in the Philippines as super storm Haiyan wreaked devastation with the most powerful winds ever recorded.
 
My choice of not writing any more small books was abruptly reconsidered in September 2013.  Dr. Arthur Milholland, a faculty member in the University of Maryland School of Medicine sent a book review about jellyfish and  the future of our ocean to me .From the review of  the 2013  book entitled Stung! On Jellyfish Blooms and the  future of the Ocean, I discovered more clearly how our collective oceanic future is now intertwined with jellyfish.
 
I phoned Jacoby Carter, PhD, a researcher of invasive species who works with the US Geological Survey (USGS) Wetlands Center in Lafayette. There isn't too much in the environmental area that Jacoby does not know about. It became apparent Jacoby and other friends in Louisiana were not aware of this important book on the spread of jellyfish. I soon felt compelled to summarize the 400 page book by compiling a brief commentary on the subject. You, the honorable reader of this elementary book might be inclined to read Lisa Gershwin's excellent but troubling volume. In trying to write another haiku book, a word of my personal concern would be expressed for our ocean in rapid decline. And you as exploring readers will perceive "jellies" are on the rise everywhere. May you never be stung by a jellyfish!
