Talking oceans, climate change with PBS' White House Chronicle

Llewellyn King, host of the public television series "White House Chronicle" was kind enough to pay me a visit at the Portland Press Herald newsroom to film an interview on the crisis in the world's oceans, climate change in the Gulf of Maine, and my first book, Ocean's End: Travels Through Endangered Seas.

The segment has been airing this week on 200 public and community television stations across the country -- including WETA in Washington, DC and Rhode Island Public Television -- as well as Voice of America and Sirius XM radio's POTUS channel. It's also now available for online viewing.

For those interested in learning more about how climate change is effecting the Gulf of Maine, the six-part Portland Press Herald series we discuss in the segment -- "Mayday" -- can be read from here. On the oceans crisis more broadly, there's Ocean's End and my subsequent reporting from places like Greenland, the Adriatic, and Iceland.

While in Maine, King also interviewed me for a segment on American Nations, my book on North American regionalism, which aired last month.
