Imagine a world without fish
It’s a frightening premise, and it’s happening right now. "A Sea Change" follows the journey of retired history teacher Sven Huseby on his quest to discover what is happening to the world’s oceans. Speaking with oceanographers, marine biologists, climatologists, and artists, Sven discovers that global warming is only half the story of the environmental catastrophe that awaits us.
Excess carbon dioxide is dissolving in our oceans, changing sea water chemistry. The more acidic water makes it difficult for tiny creatures at the bottom of the food web to form their shells. The effects could work their way up to the fish that 1 billion people depend upon for their source of protein.
A disturbing and essential companion piece to "An Inconvenient Truth," "A Sea Change" brings home the indisputable fact that our lifestyle is changing the earth, despite our rhetoric or wishful thinking.
