Technology: Friend or Foe for the Future of our Oceans

10/4/2019; 28 minutes

Ours is a water planet. Technology is shaping our uses, both as foe and ally.

But technology has also raised CO2 levels, caused acidic oceans, threatened ocean biodiversity and created grand climate challenges. UCSB marine biologist Doug McCauley describes technology to promote ocean health and provide a balance. Recorded on 07/10/2019. (#35175)
