Dr. SYLVIA EARLE is one of the most famous ocean explorers – and explainers – of all time. The oceanographer was the former chief scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and is one of the world’s leading advocates for marine conservation. Lately she’s been speaking up about the environmental toll of marine catastrophes like the Gulf oil spill, acidification caused by the buildup of carbon in the atmosphere and oceans, overfishing and more. She’s in town to give a lecture tonight at the Academy of Natural Sciences, and she’s guest host TRACEY MATISAK’s guest on today’s Radio Times.
