Static Preview

Published on Mar 28, 2016

Arctic sea ice appears to have reached a record low wintertime maximum extent for the second year in a row, according to scientists at the National Snow and Ice Data Center and NASA. This short animation shows the Arctic sea ice freeze cycle from the last summertime minimum extent to March 24, when it reached its wintertime maximum extent: at 5.607 million square miles, it is the lowest maximum extent in the satellite record.

Sustainability Pioneers 4: It Takes a Leader
Static Preview

The "Doomsday Clock" now stands at three minutes till midnight due to the rapid progression of the climate crisis. Unchecked climate change is now as serious a risk to humanity as the nuclear weapons for which the Doomsday Clock was created. World leaders have failed to do what is necessary to stop the course of climate change. Yet, there are leaders who are modeling ways to turn back the clock. Sustainability Pioneers visits one of them, Borough Manager Mario Leone, Jr, from Monaca, Pennsylvania. Monaca has reduced utility costs by 25 percent, thanks to energy saving strategies initiated by Mr. Leone. Published on May 14, 2015

New Thinking On The Climate Crisis by Al Gore
Static Preview

TED Al Gore's new thinking on the climate crisis.

Once the US Vice President, then star of An Inconvenient Truth, now Nobel Peace Prize winner, Al Gore found a way to focus the world's attention on climate change and in this presentation he once again points towards alternative energy and the progress we have made which he believes gives us a reason to be positive in the face of ever mounting evidence of the severe consequences of global warming.

Climate Change: Where We Are Now and Where We Are Going? by Prof James White
Static Preview

Published on Sep 2, 2015

Professor James White reviews the basic science behind the Earth's climate system and discusses how humans are impacting it and put the current climate situation into the context of natural variability. White is director of the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research.

Do you believe in climate change?" It's a common question, and after being posed the question, most of us would probably pause, try to assess our questioner to judge how ugly or pleasant this conversation might soon get, and then possibly offer an answer. But to a climate scientist, it's a rather strange, even bizarre question. The obvious answer is no, but not because climate is not changing, which it is, and not because humans are not a cause, which we are. The problem is that word, "believe."
