Mission Blue

Synopsis: Legendary oceanographer and TED prize winner Dr. Sylvia Earle is on a mission to save our oceans. Mission Blue is part action-adventure, part expose of an Eco-disaster. More than 100 scientists, philanthropists and activists gather in the Galapagos Islands to help fulfill Dr. Earle's lifelong wish: build a global network of marine protected areas, like underwater national parks, to protect the natural systems that keep humans alive. As the expedition ends, the Deep water Horizon oil well explodes. With oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico, Sylvia and an environmental dream team race around the world trying to defend her 'Hope Spots'.

It was just heaven for a kid...

for me.

It will always be that way in my

mind, it's just this paradise.

Happening now, an

explosion and fire

devastate a massive oil rig

off the Louisiana coast.

Last week's deadly

oil rig blowout

remains unchecked tonight.

And it's raising fears of an

environmental disaster in the making.

As long as the oil is flowing

down here in the Gulf,

this will simply keep growing

and growing and growing,

and they have no idea

where the end will be.

How'd you feel? What was

your first reaction?

It was shocking.

And it just got worse

as the news unfolded.

Of course, the tragedy was

the human lives lost.

Then this gush of oil wouldn't stop,

wouldn't stop, wouldn't stop!

When I was a child

living in Florida,

there was only one offshore oil

well in the Gulf of Mexico.

Today, there are more

than 33,000 drill sites.

All of us... we are the beneficiaries

of having burned through fossil fuels.

Coal, gas, oil.

But at what cost?

I really come to

speak for the ocean.

We put billions into what takes

us into the skies above...

and it's paying off handsomely.

We've neglected the ocean...

and it's costing us dearly.

The thing that's impressive

to me about Sylvia

is that she's not afraid

to point fingers...

and say, "You know what you're

doing, and it's wrong."

You know, she's kind of the

Joan of Arc of the oceans.

- Go!

- She's the one that's out in front

leading the charge in the

fight to save the ocean.

And she's made it her life's purpose

in the last couple of decades

to make sure everybody else understands

what's going on and why it's important.

It's life itself that the

ocean is delivering.

This is a turning point.

If we continue business as

usual, we're in real trouble.

Her passion for the ocean
