First Paragraph

You feel light-headed, your knees are weak, your eyes lose focus, and whatever is in your stomach wants to get out. This sickness is familiar to many who sail on the ocean, one that I have gotten to know too well as a marine biologist. In her book Seasick, Alana Mitchell concludes that the ocean, too, is sick: light-headed from hypoxia, weak from bleaching, and upset from pollution.
