The other CO2 problem
Saturday, June 10, 2017

Have we mentioned that claymation is one of our absolute favorite things? You can imagine how thrilled we were to hear about a new film which uses that medium to teach about ocean acidification. Made by kids!

Students from Ridgeway School in Plymouth created The Other CO2 Problem, which debuted in Copenhagen before 100 internationalscientists and policy makers attending the International Congress onClimate Change this month. It's a seven-minute animation starring characters from King Poseidon’s sea kingdom. The film laments the fact that Doctorpus, Britney Star, Michelle Mussel, Derek the Diatom and other sea creatures are suffering as the ocean becomes more acidic as a result of human activities.

The students received technical support from from Sundog Media, and were commissioned by EPOCA [European Project on OCean Acidification], supported by UCP Marjon, and National Marine Aquarium. See the Ocean Acidification blog for more information.

Helping get the word out
Saturday, June 10, 2017

We have two new partners helping get the word out about ocean acidification, and we're very grateful.Alternativechannel_web_contour_en

First, Alternative Channel, an international Web TV (in 3 languages) devoted to sustainable development. It's a free platform where citizens, corporations, NGOs and NPOs can share uploading videos about sustainable development and humanitarian causes. The channel has 100,000 monthly visitors coming from 156 different countries. Sustainable development is clearly a global concern.

And the North American Assocation for Environmental Education (NAAEE) is letting their members know about the film. If anyone can use A Sea Change, they can!
