ACS/LA MONTHLY LECTURE SERIES
"Altered Oceans" by Ken Weiss
Los Angeles Times reporter Ken Weiss discusses "Altered Oceans," a five-part series that explores how manmade stresses on the seas have not merely polluted the Earth's watery skin but altered its basic chemistry. The result: Fish, corals and marine mammals are in retreat and the ocean's most primitive life forms -- algae, bacteria and jellyfish -- are proliferating. Ken talks about the process of researching and writing the series, how he coaxed his editors to look beyond Hollywood and even Britney and allow him to focus on disturbing trends surfacing in the living oceans.
The series has won a number of national and international awards including the Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting, George Polk Award for environmental reporting, Columbia Journalism School's John B. Oakes Award, and the American Geophysical Union's Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism. It was published July-August, 2006, and remains on the web site: www.latimes.com/oceans.
The talk is free and open to the public. The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium is located at 3720 Stephen M. White Drive in San Pedro. ACS/LA lectures are free and are held on the last Tuesday of the month.
