"See, I happen to love the ocean ever since I was a little baby & I was growing up on this planet which we are blessed with. I said to myself, ‘You know, the ocean is one of the most amazing things in the entire universe! Let alone on this planet! When the UFOs come down they see our oceans they go, ‘God, these guys are lucky! Look at these oceans they have with all these creatures! And these dolphins, and these whales, and these sharks, and these fish, and these octopuses, and everyone is hugging each other, and swimming through this liquid space atmosphere down there in the ocean and they’re having a good time! And the people get to go swimming, and surfing, and recreation, and sailboating!! And it’s just beautiful out here!! And the idea that there’s some guy in an office somewhere sitting behind his desk saying, ‘How am I going to make a few more million dollars with my paper mill this year? Well, maybe if I cut the cost, and I pollute a little more into the ocean then I could make some bigger profits.’ And they destroy this beautiful planet that we are blessed with and, to me, it’s an angering concept. So that’s why I come down here so I can sort of express myself and tell you that everybody has to kind of take responsibility for this planet and specifically on this day the oceans on this planet ‘cause I love them. Okay? And I don’t want my kids to have to come out of the water and go into some detoxification booth on the beach because, you know, it takes all of the fun out of it really."- Anthony Kiedis
