Lethal Seas

Lethal Seas Nova DVDLethal Seas (direct­ed by Sal­ly Ingle­ton) expos­es the dead­ly recipe that is brew­ing through­out the Earth’s oceans, threat­en­ing the sur­vival of the count­less crea­tures liv­ing there. For years, we’ve known that the oceans absorb about a quar­ter of the car­bon diox­ide in our atmos­phere. But with high car­bon emis­sions world­wide, this silent killer is enter­ing our seas at a stag­ger­ing rate, rais­ing the ocean’s acid­i­ty. This change in the chem­istry of the water eats away at the skele­tons and shells of the marine crea­tures that form the foun­da­tion of the web of life. Lethal Seas — which was pre­sent­ed as part of PBS’s NOVA series — fol­lows the ded­i­cat­ed sci­en­tists who are seek­ing solu­tions to this extreme­ly seri­ous prob­lem, includ­ing vis­its to a unique coral gar­den in Papua New Guinea that offers a glimpse of what the seas could be like a half-cen­tu­ry from now if cur­rent trends continue.
