Anne W. Simon
“It is painful to absorb the fact that one generation, our generation, has not only poisoned the air to a degree which is causing us serious disabilities, and plundered the earth, but now is beyond any doubt corrupting the ocean. The mysterious human bond with the great seas that poets write about has a physiological base in our veins and in every living thing, where runs fluid of the same saline proportions as ocean water. It is no wonder that we are instinctively drawn to the sea and would avoid any sign that we are damaging it.”
Anne W. Simon, U.S. scientist, environmentalist, writer
(1914 - 1996)
Full name: Anne Wertheim Simon.
