Have you heard that ocean temperatures are rising globally? Do you know what this means? Are you interested in learning more about this issue and what can be done to protect the health of the oceans?
Join Greenbelt on Thursday March 23rd from 2:00-4:00 pm for the fourth segment of the "State of Our Oceans" Lecture and Film Series as we screen the critically accalimed film A Sea Change. This free screening will take place at the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge, located at 6 Plum Island Turnpike, Newburyport. Once the film is concluded, Sarah Heil and Eric Hutchins of NOAA will be able to help answer any questions and offer their professional insight on the topic. Please make sure you RSVP if you plan on attending!
A Sea Change is a documentary film that takes the audience on a journey to find out what is happening to the state of our oceans. Follow along as a retired teacher travels around the globe to try to figure out all he can about the issue of sea temperature rise, and how it can be stopped for future generations before it is too late.
Throughout this documentary, the causes of sea temperature rise around the world are outlined, with a specific focus on how oceans act as a carbon sink, and how that carbon dioxide is dissolving the oceans and changing the sea water chemisty. Not only are habitats and organisms within the ocean affected, but humans will also keep feeling greater effects if this issue continues to go unchecked.
This film will be an eye-opening experience that will instill a sense of urgency within people about the issue of sea temperature rise, but will also give you hope for the future of our oceans if we all attempt to make a difference.
