WOODY JOHNSON - US AMBASSADOR
US AMBASSADOR - Robert Wood “Woody” Johnson, owner of the NFL’s New York Jets, served as the top envoy to the United Kingdom, as President Trump’s billionaire ambassador.
US Ambassador Robert Wood (Woody) Johnson attended the launching ceremony of the Mayflower 2 in Plymouth, UK at the Plymouth 400 event.
The Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS) is a grass roots initiative led by marine research non-profit ProMare that has potentially incongruous ties with the military Msubs. Msubs is said to have built or is building submarines for the US and Royal Navies. A similar setup was noted in 2013 with ASV Global's C-Enduro, where an ocean research vessel was being built by a company that also built autonomous or drone navy craft.
In our view, while exploring the potential of the technology for peace keeping, not for profit concerns that thump the conservation drum, should perhaps distance themselves from military ambition, so as to not only be seen to be operating in the interests of marine conservation, but in fact operating without leaning on what some may see as military underpinning, since nuclear ships operated by the military are a major cause of concern in terms of ocean pollution. It might then be appropriate to sever what some may view as incompatible ties.
NEW PRESIDENCY - According to the Daily Express Nov 10, 2020, Joe Biden has been tipped to appoint former US President Barack Obama as ambassador to the UK. Ref. Emily Ferguson. Former US President Barack Obama is well known for the good works he started on climate change and ocean conservation. We hope that the new team are able to continue what they started, amid plans to deal with Covid 19, to rejoin the majority of the world in securing food for all, and other United Nations sustainability goals.
