Eye-to-Eye with Climate Change in the Ocean

The Public Science Lecture Series
February 15, 2011 Cambridge Public Library, Cambridge MA

Les Kaufman, PhD, Professor of Biology, Boston University Marine Program; Senior Marine Scientist, Conservation International; Research Scholar, New England Aquarium

Marine biologist Les Kaufman explains that climate change is real and palpable. Fresh from the field, he presents in pictures and words a scene of sweeping transformation in the world’s oceans, from the most remote coral atolls of the Pacific nation of Kiribati, to the threatened waterfronts and fisheries of Massachusetts. His message: clean up our act at home, and we can hand our grandchildren a world as rich as the one we grew up in.
