Alanna Mitchell

The Ocean in Peril

Date:October 2011
Location:Canada

Alanna Mitchell, arguably “the world’s best environmental journalist,” author of Sea Sick: The Global Ocean in Crisis, a profound and eloquent wake-up call about the degradation of the place where life began.

Alanna Mitchell is an award-winning Canadian author and journalist and an engaging speaker on environmental science, conservation and sustainability. In her latest book, Sea Sick: The Hidden Crisis in the Global Ocean, Mitchell convinces us that if we kill the ocean, we kill the planet. Skillfully interweaving scientific concepts with firsthand accounts and stories about the fieldwork of internationally renowned scientists, Mitchell shows us how the ocean—what she calls the true lungs of the planet—produces most of the Earth’s oxygen and how it ultimately controls our climate.
