Meet the congressman who co-wrote STOCK, Stop Trading On Congressional Knowledge.  He will speak on the Bevans Lecture Series: Ocean Acidification.   The issue of acidic oceans is very serious. Many oceanic organisms require a naturally stable and specific ph range to grow tiny shells on their bodies. This as well as other important biological mechanisms are disrupted by acidification- the lecture will last from 4:30pm to 5:30pm and will be followed by a reception.
