Wonderful explanation of these two bills, Emily. Thank you. As an eco activist artist, I try to stay up on all the legislative action regarding the environment, which is tough. Your post has made it easier for me. I'll share it all around!

Nick. Truly a disheartening observation on the part of this sailor. As one whose goal is to improve the health of our environment (and this cannot be truly accomplished as long as our oceans are ailing), I am spurred on by your article. I intend to add more eco paintings depicting the plight of our seas to my eco art series which will eventually appear in a one person show which will highlight the subject and also contribute a percentage of sales to it. janetglatz.com

Nick--an important distinction. Government needs to put their money where their mouths are. I'd like to see someone organize a huge art exhibit/sale of eco art from around the world concerning the oceans and have half the proceeds go to saving our seas. @The Ocean Conservancy @WEAD @kdb @ReneePhillips @Oceana @NRDC janetglatz.com

Just yesterday my grand daughter and I went to Reid State Park Beach in Mid-coast Maine. I have to say the beach was pristine--so gorgeous. EVERYONE deserves to enjoy beaches like this--so please, if you see trash, pick it up! One woman even chased down a seagull that had made off with a sandwich wrapper. That's what I call dedication!

My name is Janet Glatz. I'm a painter of contemporary realism in Maine who specializes in environment art. In fact, I just finished a series entitled, Man and Sea. I'd like to talk about contributing a percentage of my sales to Ocean Conservancy. It wouldn't be a whole lot, but it would make me proud and happy to help.

I fervently wish the public would try to educate themselves a bit more on the facts and truths about wildlife. Mr. Cousteau's story is excellent! http://janetglatzmaineart.com

Kudos to Anreas Merkl for keeping the candle lit and the flame glowing bright for the health of our oceans. As an eco-artist who in my small way spreads awareness, your articles and posts are encouraging and stimulating. Friends at HealingArts.com agree. @Renee Phillips

I am moved by your article, just as I was moved by the Japanese Tsunami to paint, "Fukashima Tsunami", found at http://janetglatzmaineart.com. This piece has garnered worldwide attention for its unvarnished depiction of the devastation and the hope left behind. @reneephillips

Each day I become for cognizant and more determined to make some small difference in the war against ocean pollution, warming, and rising sea levels. As an artist, the way I can do that is through the stories I tell in my paintings. If you have a moment, please see them at http://janetglatzmaineart.com. They are getting world-wide attention. Thank you.

Bravo, Sarah, for furthering the cause of all of us who value the oceans so many species call home. As an environmental artist, I'm now trying to come up with a painting that tells the story of the unfortunate albatross. janetglatzmaineart.com

Cudos for a valuable wake up call! Those of us who value creatures like sea turtles will continue to advocate for responsible fishing practices throughout the world. http://janetglatzmaineart.com

Seems impossible that two years have passed. I commemorated the catastrophe by painting "Fukashima Tsunami", seen at janetglatzmaineart.com which is being regularly viewed by people all over the world on Fine Art America.
