    e·thos / ˈēTHäs
    noun. the characteristic spirit of a culture, era, or community as manifested in its beliefs and aspirations.
    The environmental and political turmoil we face in the world today is symptomatic of a failing system unable to support and sustain us. We are facing a bankrupt value system. The question is, “what’s next?” In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill tackles this head-on, arguing for a new paradigm for the 21st century, a “hydraulic society” enabled by a healthy ocean and the fresh water cycle.
