The main point that I want to make concerns the threat of irreparable harm, which I feel we have not communicated well enough to people who most need to know, the public and policymakers. I’m not sure how we can do that better, but I comment on it at the end of this transcript. In […]
The situation in the south of the Greenlandic Ice Cap is deteriorating. A global warming of the earth seems to threaten this area more than anywhere else in the world. Recorded temperatures have begun to fluctuate, and native inhabitants find their culture beginning to sink, below rising sea levels. As is the case for the […]
This movie was shot during our 20 days trip to Antarctica in December 2014 to January 2015. We started from Ushuaia in Argentina and went to Port Williams in Chile, rounded Cape Horn and crossed the Drake Passage towards the Melchior Islands in Antarctica. We spent 16 days in the Antarctic and got to experience […]
On September 21, 2014 we installed a 3,500 pound ice sculpture of the words The Future at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and 23 Street in New York during the People’s Climate March. This video compresses the 11 hour event into 4 minutes. “A century’s carelessness is now melting away the world’s storehouses of ice, […]
Actually recorded in December, 2015. I caught up with James Hansen, former Chief Atmospheric Scientist for NASA, known as the Father of Global Warming – at the 2015 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco.
Kiribati is a tiny nation of 100,000 people living on dozens of islands over a huge area of the South Pacific. And it is set to become the first state completely destroyed by climate change. The government estimates the country will vanish beneath the waves by 2050 due to rising sea levels and coastal erosion, […]
Anatomy of a slow motion catastrophe. Video focuses on mounting challenges facing residents and property owners in south Florida as saltwater intrusion and rising sea level become increasingly problematic.
The most sobering evidence of the planet’s response to greenhouse gases comes from the fossil record. New evidence scientists are collecting suggests that ice sheets may be more vulnerable than previously believed, which has huge implications for sea level rise.
Independent videographer Peter Sinclair’s ‘This is Not Cool’ video explores recent headline-grabbing research on Antarctic glacial melting, the first video produced under the name Yale Climate Connections, formerly The Yale Forum on Climate Change & The Media.
