Speaker: Julia Barnes
Topic: The Imminent Threat of Deep Sea Mining
Time: Sep 13, 2023 13:30 Eastern Time (US and Canada)
As the ocean struggles under the assaults of industrial fishing, ocean acidification, warming, and pollution, corporations are rushing to exploit it in a new and dangerous way. They want to turn the deep sea into the largest contiguous mining area on the planet, destroying fragile habitats while polluting the entire water column with toxic waste. Unlike most environmental threats, we have an opportunity to stop deep sea mining before it begins – and we must!
Julia Barnes is an award-winning documentary filmmaker. She is the director of Sea of Life (2017) and Bright Green Lies (2021). Julia is a biocentric environmentalist whose work currently focuses on preventing deep sea mining.
