14 May: Scientific documentary “Tipping Point” on ocean acidification during the Franska Filmfestivalen

Venue: Sture, Birger Jarlsgatan
Date and time: 14 May 2011, 1pm

Increasing levels of CO2 in the atmosphere are not only causing Global warming.

Oceans are absorbing huge quantities of CO2 which in turn is changing their chemical composition and severely damaging the marine environment.

By following leading international researchers, Tipping Point will take us around the world and under water to discover how ocean acidification is changing marine ecosystems and what scientific solutions can be found to solve the problem.

Through beautifully shot under-sea images and careful scientific approach, the film tackles the main issues of this relatively new phenomenon by providing solutions before it’s too late!

Organised with the Scientific Department of the French Embassy and the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme’s headquarters in Stockholm, this special screening will be presented and commented by a researcher of the EPOCA project, the European Project on Ocean Acidification. The overall goal of EPOCA is to advance our understanding of the biological, ecological, biogeochemical and societal implications of ocean acidification. “Tipping Point” is a French documentary presented in an English version.

A discussion in English will follow the screening.
Professor John Havenhand, from Göteborg University (Dept. of Marine Ecology), will be present.

From the producer/director of Public Enemy Number 1: Carbon and Gulf Stream successfully distributed worldwide.
