The 6th Mass Extinction has begun
16 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This important documentary serves as a wake up call to deniers of man made climate change and also to those who just don't see the need for concern. It takes the time to teach us about basic coral anatomy, their reliance on zooplankton, and then chronicles the surging ocean temperatures and the direct correlation with the death of entire swaths of reef. This film will make you cry as it makes you come to grips with the reality of climate change. Watch it, and then share it with others too, to help educate those too distracted to understand the calamity we're witnessing.

While it doesn't go into ocean acidification, that is where I'd challenge the viewer to explore next. It's not a counter theory, but rather the two are interrelated.
