Twitter chat: What are the biggest threats to U.S. waters and marine life?

Saturday marks the United Nations’ 11th annual World Water Day — an event meant to bring awareness to the connection between water and energy.

It’s safe to say that water affects your life in some way or another. Perhaps you’re a California resident who’s experiencing the effects of the drought. Or maybe water plays a large role in your work.

Join PBS NewsHour for a Twitter chat at 1 p.m. EDT Thursday about water and its impact on your world. Eric Schwaab, Chief Conservation Officer at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Md., and Laura Bankey, the aquarium’s Director of Conservation, will take your questions about water and how pollution, climate change and ocean acidification affects marine life.
