Scientist explains Global Warming in 1990

Climate scientist Stephen Schneider talks climate change. Dr. Stephen Schneider is one of the most notable and outspoken scientists on the topic of climate change. His moderate and scientific approach to explaining climate change has helped congressmen, journalists, and citizens understand the complex, and often contradictory, issues related to global warming. In this ever timely…

Expert explains Future Sea Level Rise (2017)

Eric Rignot (NASA/JPL) one of the world’s most prominent glaciologists, who is behind a landmark report revealing the unstoppable collapse of a large part of Antarctica, gave a lecture at Victoria University of Wellington in February 2017, on future sea level rise.

Greenland Melt contributes to Sea Level Rise

Using satellite and field work after an extreme melt event in Greenland, a UCLA-led study finds that melt-prone areas on its ice sheet develop a remarkably efficient drainage system of stunning blue streams and rivers that carry meltwater into moulins (sinkholes) and ultimately the ocean. However, the team’s measurements at the ice’s edge show that…
