Deep Sea Mining and the Coronavirus

Deep Sea Mining and the Coronavirus

In this episode, we explore the relationship between renewable energy and our cell phones, the perpetually nascent deep-ocean mining industry, and the Coronavirus. We also learn how working together before the industry has started extracting resources that stakeholders, industry, and conservation interests are in a key position to minimize impact.

The team meets with Dr. Andrew Thaler - CEO of Blackbeard Biologic and Dr. Diva Amon - founder of SpeSeas, a non-profit that supports marine research in the Caribbean.
