The old oil industry and the sea

Marine biologist and underwater photographer Rob Stewart sets out to save the sharks, but soon realizes that overfishing is not the only problem. Coral reefs are dying due to acidification of the oceans. Fossil energy is to blame, and Stewart joins activists and interviews experts hoping to avoid the biggest change the earth has seen in 65 million years. This beautifully shot documentary is a riveting warning delivered with a fighting spirit, combining the big picture with priceless details.
