With the world's oceans increasingly in the headlines — whether as a force in extreme weather events or a source of sustainably caught fish for McDonald's — any writer worth his or her salt (water) needs to know a thing or two about the basics. Join Grist, Ocean Conservancy, and Climate Central from 1-2 p.m. EDT, April 16 2013, for a lively online Q&A on understanding ocean issues from acidification to zooplankton, fishing for scientific accuracy, and conveying it all to the public with a splash. Bring your questions!
Please let us know if you can make it by replying to Jeff Giza-Martin: firstname.lastname@example.org . Link and call-in information will be provided after registration. Hope to "sea" you there (oh yeah we did).
