The Moat

Prensa Latina , The Cuban Ministry of Tall Tales, informs us today of an Oceanic Congress which is taking place on the Island. (see below). I couldn't help but wonder if in one of the conferences they're going to discuss ways to turn the ocean into an impenetrable prison wall to keep the population captive. Cuba , if you think about it, is a medieval island-castle , ruled by an evil tyrant king surrounded by a deep, shark infested moat around it to keep the subjects from escaping...yet some still do.

The scientists will contribute to the research guided to recover and preserve sea ecosystems and especially develop cleaning programs of those geographical areas.

Some specialists consider that the studies of pollution damages to oceanic environment of the insular platform and the oceans are decisive.

Participants of the event in the International Conference Center plan to enrich their sessions with the analysis of fulfillment of the agreements on the sea environment.

They also will address issues included in the agenda of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (COI), including the ocean and its influence on the frequency and intensity of weather and climate phenomena.
