Oceans in Peril
Director Howard Hall and his producer and wife, Michele Hall, hope that the film will not only entertain IMAX audiences, but also help them understand the effects of global warming and ocean acidification on marine life.
To start digging deeper into how global warming is affecting the oceans, check out some of our ScienCentral News stories on the issue:
Undersea Weather- The extreme weather that impacts us is now having an effect where you might least expect it – deep under the sea. Scientists have linked climate change to population booms and busts in deep-sea life.
C02 and Acid Oceans- Research is showing carbon dioxide is not only causing global warming, it’s also causing sea water to become more acidic. The question of what this means for sea life is becoming a hot topic for everyone from scientists to filmmakers.
Irreversible Warming- A just published report on the future of global warming is showing that unless the output of carbon dioxide is curbed soon, the severe consequences of global warming will be essentially irreversible.
Deadly Ocean Burp- Could a dangerous gas buildup at the bottom of the ocean bubble up and wipe out most life on Earth? According to some researchers, it already has done so; several times. Scientists are worried that global warming is making conditions ripe for another deadly ocean burp.Share Post: | Stumble | Share on Facebook | Tweet This |
