Altered Oceans

A Los Angeles Times 5-part video series on the crisis in the seas.
A lethal neurotoxin plagues the sea. The cause? Pollution, sewage and farm run-off. The result? Marine mammals dying in large numbers and coastal communities (and their dogs) plagued with respiratory ailments and severe illness. Disturbing but worth knowing about. I'll likely reduce my seafood intake, buy fewer things that have been imported, and never take a cruise ship vacation. This incredible set of videos takes a few seconds to download but is worth the wait.
