“Sound of Sea” is the story of a strange sound coming from the ocean. A never-before-heard, almost living sound.

The first person to hear it during one of his dives was French free diver Guillaume Néry, the secret player behind this whole operation who posted a video of the sound on his various social media accounts yesterday morning, Wednesday, April 3.

Several dozen sea lovers and influencers shared this strange sound, extending its impact on social networks, immediately raising many questions. What is this sound? Where does it come from? What does it mean?

The sound is actually a combination of different sounds: real undersea sounds and echoing laments from the living world, victim of man's over-exploitation: a harpooned whale, pilot whales hunted down in the Faroe Isles, dolphins caught in fishermen's nets, frenetic, agitated schools of fish packed together in trawlers’ nets.

Inaudible, invisible and therefore overlooked atrocities.

Sorted, amplified, processed and juxtaposed, these sounds resulted in a single, unique sound:
“Sound of Sea”: an SOS from the ocean.

The sound was emitted from a strange spherical beacon sunk in the depths of the ocean off La Rochelle, France, where the Sam Simon is currently on a mission to stop fishing vessels from catching dolphins in their nets. This beacon was specially designed for an operation led by Sea Shepherd France and the TBWA\Paris advertising agency.

The idea behind the device was to raise people's awareness of the urgent need to reduce our fish consumption. Political measures are too weak and too slow. It is time for each and every one of us to take real action: rethinking how we (de)consume the ocean and stop treating it like an inexhaustible pantry. Because scientists' forecasts are alarming: according to the United Nations, if nothing is done to curb the phenomenon of overfishing, fish populations will collapse by 2048. Without them, the ocean -- the planet's leading climate regulator and oxygen provider -- will cease to function. We won't survive the death of the ocean. Far more than protein, fish are the breath that connects us to life.

In the end, Sound of Sea is a new way of grabbing the attention of both the general public and the media.

It's no longer Man speaking to Man about the Oceans’ problems. In a way, this is the ocean speaking directly to us in its own language, a language we understand without ever having learned it - a distress signal, a scream: an SOS.

Everywhere.''We’ve got a planet to save.'Walter Jehne.* * *'Fire vs Fungi: our choice to naturally cool the planet and in time' (14 min 30 sec) tells an overwhelmingly important, interconnected and inspiring story that uproots the narrative of 'doom and gloom' and replants it with an empowering 'yes, we can regenerate earth's bio-systems to cool the planet naturally and in time and reverse climate change.'It starts with cultivating more of the tiny superheroes literally underneath our feet to restore what's known as the Earth's natural carbon sponge.Wild fire incidence can be reduced, landscapes can be restored and rehydrated, vast tracts of Earth's arid lands can be regenerated.As we walk with climate scientist and soil micro-biologist Walter Jehne and outdoor educator Katja Hesse in the Rainforest Gully at the Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra, the conclusion is clear: 'We can naturally and safely cool this planet within years. Everywhere. We've got a planet to save.'* * * Accompanying notesThe rainforest was designed to recycle the water from its runoff via the mist to create the more mesic micro environment to enable the soil microbial and plant successions to occur. For most of the past 50 years it has developed largely on this basis more efficiently using and cycling the same rainfall that the adjacent dry woodland gets (but without this human-induced, small water cycle).Hence it is how the rain is used rather than how much rain is received that is the key variable in its development. The question now is does the rainforest canopy harvest more water from fogs and mist than the surrounding natural dry forest but the Australian National Botanic Gardens don’t have data on this.They have recently watered some areas that they have cleared to help establish introduced rainforest plants and to help survival in our drought but overall it has been established using the existing rainfall more efficiently. This is consistent with the natural occurrence of over 1200 patches of residual rainforest across northern Australia with some surviving in semi arid climates like central Australia by creating such micro-climates.
