- Screenings of A Sea Change
Imagine a world without fish. It’s a terrifying idea, and worst of all, it’s happening right now. A Sea Change follows retired history teacher and grandfather Sven Huseby on his quest to discover what is happening to the world’s oceans. His journey takes him to Alaska, California, Washington, and Norway as he uncovers a worldwide crisis that most people are unaware of. Speaking with oceanographers, marine biologists, and climatologists, Sven discovers that global warming is only half the story of the environmental catastrophe that is unfolding.
The film will be shown at several locations in Copenhagen during United Nations climate talks. Scripps researchers, including film participants, will take part in panel discussions in conjuction with screenings at these events.
