Hello Viorel and Joe

We would to share this  groundbreaking new release film with you shown Wednesday evening at the Athena, 7-9 pm .  It is an exceptional film. It explores the impacts of climate change on coral reefs globally looking at CO2 impacts (90% is stored in oceans causing warming and ecological impacts)  It is engaging, important information, interesting and photographically beautiful. Best, Loraine McCosker

Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate. A team of divers, photographers and scientists set out on a thrilling ocean adventure to discover why and to reveal the underwater mystery to the world.

Of all the conservation challenges on the planet, ocean conservation should top the list – it is about conserving the very source of life on Earth.
There is a challenge that is out of sight and out of mind - awareness of the issues and fundamental role of the ocean is so low, ocean conservation is one of the least supported areas of conservation.

For thousands of years, the ocean has been stable, providing our planet with food, most of the oxygen we breathe, a favorable climate and a reliable supply of fresh water. But the ocean is no longer stable. It is changing faster now than at any time in millions of years. We have pushed it to its limit and beyond, thinking it was too big to fail us.

93% of climate change heat is being absorbed by the ocean, and a third of CO2 emissions, rapidly changing ocean chemistry – the ocean is where the momentum of climate change is building up. Letting rapid ocean change continue is quite frankly not an option, not if we want humanity to continue to flourish.

Panelists: Molly Gurien, Christina Shirtzinger, Neena Mcllwaine and Aimee Delach.
