Journalist Kenneth Weiss writes for the Los Angeles Times, where he has covered the California coast and the oceans for five years. His five-part series "Altered Oceans," written with Usha Lee McFarling, explores how pollution has changed the basic chemistry of the oceans, raising questions about long-term marine health. The series recently won a George Polk Award.
