Biologist and popular speaker Ron LeValley will look at our changing ocean and how warming trends, an increase in carbon dioxide, and floating plastic trash impact marine life.
Ron will share his observations of local waters and talk about what we can expect from the predicted 2015-2016 El Nino conditions, the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, and other long term trends in oceanography.
