How clean are the coasts in YOUR country?

There’s a new way for countries to measure how they treat the ocean — not just as “good” or “bad,” but expressible as a value.

The Ocean Health Index’s quantitative measure will give countries a numerical score of how they treat the ocean.  It is hoped that quantitative, comparable scores will encourage — or shame — low-scoring countries into cleaning up their oceanic act.

The quantitative-Ocean Health Index Vocablet highlights the new way that countries can see how well they treat their coasts, and see how much they need to improve.

Do you think that having a quantitative measurement will inspire nations to treat the oceans better?  How well do you think your country would score?  (I live in the United States, and we would probably score pretty low, sadly.)
