acid test

Why should we care if our oceans turn to acid? Is the pollution of the last fifty years enough to undo the coral reefs and remarkable diversity of 10s of 1000s? If the smallest life dies, will the food chain collapse? A three minute trailer worth a glance.

The Dalai Lama: “Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of universal responsibility—not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life.”

The following preview of Acid Test is 21 minutes long, not just the usual Youtube 3 minutes…so curl up and settle down with tea or snack and get ready to enjoy and learn:

“This groundbreaking NRDC documentary explores the startling phenomenon of ocean acidification, which may soon challenge marine life on a scale not seen for tens of millions of years. The film, featuring Sigourney Weaver, originally aired on Discovery Planet Green”
