Coming Events: Alanna Mitchell, 1 December
The Cost of Hot Water: Climate Change and the Global Ocean
Alanna Mitchell, award-winning environmental journalist, author of Sea Sick
Alanna will be speaking on climate change, focussing on its impact on the oceans. She will be bringing us the new science on this emerging threat, for life on earth depends on life in the oceans. Excess carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is warming and acidifying the global ocean, which in turn threatens life forms essential to the carbon and oxygen cycles on which so many land species (including us) depend.

"A Sea Change"
A grandfather worries about the kind of planet Earth his generation will leave to the grandkids
and the future generations. He embarks on a journey to explore the destructive impact of
climate change on the marine food chains and the ocean ecosystem. He realizes that the
ocean has become the dump site of the world (i.e. CO2 etc.) and much more. Ocean is an
important component of climate system but is not much covered by the media, this movie
fills that void.
