A Sea Change

For any fellow Vancouverites out there, you can catch a free screening of "A Sea Change" (a movie about ocean acidification) at UBC. It's at the Norm Theatre in the Student Union Building this Tuesday, Oct 5, at 6:00 pm. It's being put on by the Student Environment Centre.

Emily and Kayla:

Could you tell us a little more about yourselves first? My name is Skip and I'm a college professor.

How did you two get interested in these questions?

Yes, Emily and Kayla, who post from the same IP address, you should let us know if this is a homework question. There is nothing wrong with asking for help or ideas, but you should let us know that is what you are doing. We wouldn't want someone to inadvertently do your work for you, now would we? :)

Personally, I always disliked these kinds of questions (eg. what would the world be like without oxygen? which I remember from a junior high text) as "totally different" is not really a complete answer but anything more detailed is just wild speculation.

Not that I don't get the point of it....
