Wired: To Save the Oceans, These Guys Are Turning to Sci-Fi

Scientist Andrew Merrie doesn't think academic science papers will convince most people of the problems plaguing the world's oceans. So he's done what any of us would do: digest dozens of research articles and turn them into science fiction stories. And in case you thought this couldn't get any cooler, Merrie is pairing his stories with images by Swedish conceptual artist Simon Stålenhag, who has worked on projects like No Man's Sky. (The image above is just one of his works for the series.)
