- from Oceans
Anyone who has lived through the 150-mile-per-hour winds and pounding rain of a raging hurricane has a deep respect for the ocean. And probably a healthy fear of it, too.
The ocean can be cruel and unsparing. It is where some of the world’s most dramatic weather first takes shape.
But the oceans are responsible for more than destructive weather. They help spread the Sun’s warmth around the globe. That makes our planet a welcoming place not only for sea creatures, but also for land dwellers, like us.
