#WVBus: One-Woman Show Explains Threats To Our Oceans

Worldview just returned from our seven-city road trip. Today, we bring you coverage from Toronto, where we learned about the threats to our oceans. Science journalist Alanna Mitchell has researched how humanity is altering the chemistry of the global ocean. She captured her findings in the book “Sea Sick: The Global Ocean in Crisis,” which she is now updating on the tenth anniversary of its publication. Mitchell has also turned the book into a one-woman play that she performs around the world. Next month, she brings the show to Edinburgh, U.K. Mitchell joined Worldview to talk about our oceans’ low-oxygen dead zones and how to convey the urgency of the climate crisis to a wide audience.

The Worldview bus tour visited communities throughout the Great Lakes region for a week as we celebrate the show’s twenty-fifth year on air. From water insecurity in Flint to indigenous rights in Kalamazoo, we are sharing stories that allow you to experience the world through the communities in your own backyard.
