A Sea Change

As the Associate Producer of A Sea Change Ben was a part of the small team that crafted this film about ocean acidification, the dark side of climate change that has gone virtually unreported by the media. When CO2 is absorbed into the world’s oceans it drops their pH and raises the acidity, which in turn dissolves calcium carbonate…the building blocks for shelled creatures, coral, etc. Did we mention that 50% of the world’s oxygen comes from the oceans? Yes, it’s bad news, but this film was a valiant attempt to spread the word and was broadcast on Discovery’s short-lived Planet Green in 2009. Check out the film on the official website here.
