Read for the first time how the global ocean - 99 per cent of the planet's living space - is undergoing vast chemical changes at the hand of man and why that matters. While tremendous attention and money have been devoted to saving animals and plants on land, the deterioration of the oceans has been going on in secret, and scientists are just beginning to understand the extent of the crisis. "Seasick" is the first comprehensive account which pieces together the latest discoveries, theories and findings. What are we doing to the seas? What does this mean to the future of life on earth? "Seasick" will explain. Written by a journalist who has traveled around the world to provide the big picture, this book will forever change the way you see your planet. This is ecology at its best, as well as a thrilling adventure story.
