Stories in the Ice: What can Past Climate Tell Us about Our Future
Drilling down thousands of meters into the ancient ice preserved on earth's massive continental ice sheets, scientists can extract a wealth of information about our climate history including periods both much colder and considerably warmer than today. Ice, dust, and tiny gas bubbles in Greenland and Antarctic ice provide myriad clues into the complex workings of earth's climate system. Join Jeff Severinghaus as he describes how he delves into earth's climate past to gain insight into our climate future.

|The Reverse Keeling Curve: Greenhouse Gases from Ice Cores
Scripps Institution's own Jeff Severinghaus takes you on a thorough exploration of the record that greenhouse gases captured in ice for nearly a million years tells us, and explains what this reveals about current human activities and future conditions for our planet.
|The Truth about Climate Change
This is a two-part documentary series presented by David Attenborough, about global warming and the surrounding controversy.
|Climate Change: The Evidence and Our Options
Lonnie Thompson provides insight into the convincing evidence of climate change provided by glaciers and polar ice-caps, and the implications that inaction in the face of this rapid change will have on societies on a global scale.
|Contemporary Climate Change as Seen Through Measurements
Ralph Cicerone reviews up-to-date data on temperatures of air and water, rates of ice losses and of sea-level rise and illustrate the driving forces of greenhouse gases in an energy-balance model of Earth.
