12/12 - Big Victories for U.S. Oceans:  An ocean double play last week in Congress

As most years go, this one has been relatively good for the oceans in congress.  In addition to defeating the #1 enemy of the oceans (California Representative Richard Pombo) last week congress reauthorized the major fishery bill (Magnuson-Stevens Act) and blocked attempts to reverse the national moratorium on new offshore oil and gas drilling.  The folks at Ocean Champions have a good summary of the victories.

There is hope for the oceans
