National Oceans Month

June 2, 2010

On May 28, President Obama designated June 2010 as National Oceans Month. This wasn’t exactly a shocking proclamation since he designated June of 2009 as National Oceans Month. And designating last June as National Oceans Month wasn’t all that surprising either given that his predecessor (yep, George W. Bush) designated June 2007 and 2008 as National Oceans Month. (For the record, Bush started by declaring the week of June 4- 10, 2006 National Oceans Week.)

What does all this mean? Not much in the grand scheme of things—June is also Turkey Lovers’ Month—but here at Mauka to Makai we’re using National Oceans Month as an excuse to devote our blog to all things ocean-related. Just for one month. We’ll get back to our usual coverage of everything we think you need to know about in July.

    How ironic that while the Gulf of Mexico is being filled with toxic crude oil June is proclaimed National Ocean’s Month! Government is quick to make meaningless declarations and slow to do meaningful legislation that protect our natural resources. Worse, our government agencies fail at regulating the few weak laws and regulations that are in place. Case in point: BP oil rigs.
