World premier of acid test: The global challenge acidification on Planet Green, August 12

On August 12, 2009 at 10:30 pm, Planet Green will air the world premiere of Acid Test: The Global Challenge of Ocean Acidification, featuring narration and commentary by Sigourney Weaver.

Acid Test is a groundbreaking documentary produced by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) that explores ocean acidification and what it means for thousands of marine species. The documentary will kick off Planet Green’s Blue August month, featuring documentaries and special episodes on water-related environmental issues.

Acid Test Explores Ocean Acidity

Pollution from carbon dioxide is causing an increase in ocean acidity. In fact, our oceans have absorbed a quarter of all carbon dioxide emissions produced by burning fossil fuels since the Industrial Revolution. As a result, our oceans’ acidity levels have increase by 30%. Conditions like these have not existed since the extinction of the dinosaurs.

What does this mean to us and the marine species that inhabit our oceans? Will ocean species be able to adapt? How can we stop the rise of ocean acidity? Acid Test explores these issues, then reveals how to take action today to stop the creation of an uninhabitable ocean.

Acid Test is one of many documentaries and special episodes featured in Planet Green’s Blue August series, which focuses on environmental issues related to our oceans, rivers, and waterways. Check the Planet Green schedule for Acid Test and other Blue August specials.
