Apr 21, 2014

The Maine Sierra Club is starting a Penobscot Bay Film Series with the film “A Sea Change” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 7, in the Abbott Room at the Belfast Free Library in Belfast.

The documentary film, A Sea Change follows the journey of retired history teacher Sven Huseby on his quest to discover what is happening to the world’s oceans. His quest takes him to Alaska, California, Washington, and Norway as he uncovers research on the world's acidifying oceans and seas and its dramatic implications for our culture and economy.

Post-film discussion will be led by Rep. Mick Devin, (D-Newcastle) a marine biologist of the Darling Marine Center. Mick is presently serving in his first term in the Maine House of Representatives. Prior to his election Mick served on the Sea Urchin Zone Council for the Maine Department of Marine Resources and was a member of the Acquaculture and Marine Technical Board at the Maine Technology Institute. Mick also sponsored the bill LD1602 to establish a commission to study the effects of coastal and ocean Acidification particularly as it relates to species that are commercially harvested and grown along the Maine coast.
