If global warming ends up turning the globe into a real-life version of Waterworld, then we know the guy to run to. No, it's not Kevin Costner, but hard-core Minecraft player and YouTuber SB737. 

The amount of dumped waste which litters the ocean is having a dangerous impact on sea-life and sea-beds, to the point where some underwater species and landscapes could soon be lost forever. So, YouTubers such as Mark Rober, Jimmy "MrBeast" Donaldson, and now SB737, have pledged to do something about it by appealing for donations from fans to help the problem. 

To help raise funds, SB737 appealed to his fanbase by creating a video which documented his experiences surviving 100 days of hardcore Minecraft. Oh, and it just so happened to be in an ocean only world. 

How Did SB737 Survive 100 Days In The Ocean Only World?

It took a whole lot of diamonds and fish, but somehow SB737 managed to survive a whole 100 days thriving in an ocean only Minecraft world. It all began with the YouTuber setting off to find a shipwreck to see what resources he could find. He then mined up some wood, before moving on to find food by fishing. There were some close calls with drowning, but he continued to go down into the depths of the underwater caves on the hunt for materials.

By day two, he had already forged his own armour to take on the perils of the sea. It was while exploring the underwater caves that SB737 was able to find a ton of diamonds, which is a lot harder to do in to in the land-based worlds. Eventually he was able to build his own little platform and a Guardian farm. In the process, he went on numerous quests to End cities and grabbed himself some well-needed loot. 

However, there was one moment which looked like SB737 would have to abandon ship. At one point, when mining for ancient debris he came across several pools of lava as he was starting to quickly run out of fire resistance and was trapped down a cave. If only he'd read our updated Caves and Cliffs guide before heading down there. Luckily, he just about made it out. He went on to create his very own mob farm using red nether brick. He also found his very own Wilson in the form of a villager who he discovered on his travels, rather than a smiley-faced volleyball. By the 100th day, he certified his title as the Master of the Seas, sporting his full set of Netherite armour and standing proud over his watery kingdom. 

Who Did SB737 Raise Money For?

SB737 revealed that he was raising the money for Team Seas, an international collaborative project set up by MrBeast and Mark Rober to remove the rubbish which litters our oceans. For every $1 that fans donate, 1lb of debris is removed from the sea and helps to clean up our waters. The target is to remove 30,000,000 pounds of marine debris by January 1, 2022. As of writing, the cause has helped remove 17,344,009 lbs of litter from the oceans. 

Thank goodness, SB737 didn't come across the Warden on his travels just yet. Although, that doesn't mean the terrifying mob's arrival hasn't got us quaking in our leather boots. So has the state of the oceans for that matter. Fingers-crossed Team Seas will be able to meet its target in time.
