Sigourney Weaver Takes on Ocean Acidification


ACID TEST, a film produced by NRDC, was made to raise awareness about the largely unknown problem of ocean acidification, which poses a fundamental challenge to life in the seas and the health of the entire planet. Like global warming, ocean acidification stems from the increase of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere since the start of the Industrial Revolution.

View the film (22 minutes) and learn more about "the other CO2 problem."

Watch Sigourney Weaver deftly steer an interview on Fox News toward this important topic and film, rather than focusing on her upcoming (blockbuster-to-be, Avatar).

Then do more to help: Seas the Day!
