Sea Change, Science Buzz and Acidification of Oceans

October 26, 2010Joanne RichardsonUncategorizedComments Off on Sea Change, Science Buzz and Acidification of Oceans

On November 4, the Science Museum of Minnesota and Fresh Energy are hosting the film premiere of the documentary A Sea Change.  Though it is talking specifically about oceans and their acidification due to rising atmospheric carbon dioxide, this important issue effects the entire water cycle – including our rivers.  The web site for A Sea Change is excellent with a very interesting blog that discusses a range of topics from science to art.  The Science Buzz blog has details on the film premiere events that include a Q&A with the film’s director.

If you’d like to know more about ocean acidification, see Ocean Acidification Unprecedented in Earth History for more information.
Have we passed the tipping point, or can we mitigate the damage already done and prevent future catastrophe?
