David Gallo on life in Deep Oceans
Quote from this TED talk: "What we see when we look back in time, in the rocks and sediments, is a record of earth history. Everything on this planet, everything, works by cycles and rhythms. The continents move apart and come back together, oceans come and go, mountains come and go, glaciers come and go, El Nino comes and goes, it's not a disaster, it's rhythmic. It's almost like a symphony, it's just like music. . .and what we are learning now is that you can't listen to a 5 billion-year long symphony, get to today, and say stop, we want tomorrow's note to be the same as it was today. It's absurd, just absurd. What we've got to learn now is where this planet is going and work with it . . ."
