Interview with Alanna Mitchell, an award-winning Canadian author and journalist and engaging speaker on environmental science, conservation and sustainability. After nearly two decades as an investigative journalist, Mitchell perfected her gift for decoding the complicated language of science and translating it into the emotional narrative of everyday life. In this Green Interview, Mitchell discusses her latest book, Sea Sick: The Hidden Crisis in the Global Ocean, in which she convinces us that if we kill the ocean, we kill the planet. Skillfully interweaving scientific concepts with firsthand accounts and stories about the fieldwork of internationally renowned scientists, Mitchell examines the ecological crisis facing the world's oceans - and how we're altering everything about them from temperature, salinity, and acidity to ice cover, and the very life within them.
