Craig Venter recently released a new book, The Voyage of Sorcerer II: The Expedition That Unlocked the Secrets of the Ocean’s Microbiome, co-authored with David Ewing Duncan, which describes Venter’s two decades of work scouring the world’s oceans for microbes from a 100-foot sailboat. The book presents the oceanic evidence that human activity is altering the fabric of life on a microscopic scale. “Humans are feeding the invisible world of ocean microbes a punishing diet of pollutants, boosting the impact of climate change and hastening the destruction of life as we know it,” David Ewing Duncan sums up.
