Environmental winner documents the impact of the Deepwater Horizon disaster on the ecosystem -- the human ecosystem.
From the damage of Superstorm Sandy and increasingly dangerous wildfires to the need to reduce carbon pollution and develop clean energy, this series is giving climate disruption the kind of attention it deserves but rarely receives.
As the ocean absorbs more CO2, the ocean becomes more acidic, and acidic water affects all ocean life especially plankton and coral reefs. It poses a real threat to animals higher on the food chain, including fish. One out of six American jobs depends on our oceans.
