We surely have heard that "those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Yes, this might be one of the most worn-out quotes in history, but it rings true throughout Callum Robert's The Ocean of Life: The Fate of Man and the Sea. In it, Professor Roberts essentially explains two things: how we have changed the sea and how we could revert some of our most harmful changes.
While some might think this book could be the work of yet another environmental doomsayer, it is fair and balanced in most respects, especially when it comes to evidence in part one. However, as it often happens when a person is passionate, Professor Roberts does overstep in some of his conclusions in part two.
