*A Sea Change: Imagine a World Without Fish*

 Climate Change and Oceans

7pm, Friday, December 4th, 2009

Burke Theatre, St. Mary’s University

 We know that rising greenhouse gases in our atmosphere are affecting the
climate, but how are they affecting the oceans that cover 70% of the Earth
and play an essential role in regulating our oxygen levels and sustaining

 *A Sea Change: Imagine a World Without Fish* explores this question. The
answer makes immediate action on reducing greenhouse gas emissions
imperative. The film follows Sven Huseby, a retired history teacher, as he
tries to understand what ocean acidification means. 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 1 billion people
depend upon for their source of protein.

 Let’s keep action on climate change front and centre as we head towards the
Copenhagen International Climate Change Conference!

Following the screening will be a Q&A session with researchers working on
climate change, impacts on the developing world and fisheries

Door prizes, too!
