Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he explains the difference between floating ice and land ice, and why they effect sea levels differently. Join Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as shows how to melt ice unbelievably fast! Join Exploratorium staff as they give the quick answers to the most frequently asked questions about global warming: What is a "tipping point"? What are carbon credits? What is carbon neutral? What can I do? What can my kid do? Join us as we talk to scientists from the ANDRILL (ANtarctica DRILLing) project, who are currently on a geological drilling expedition in Antarctica. Exploratorium Producer Mary Miller chats with Marika Holland, Climate Modeler for the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Dr. Holland co-authored a recent study projecting that the summer Arctic sea ice could completely disappear by 2040. Join Mary Miller in conversation with Mark Serreze, Senior Research Scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, as they discuss recent dramatic decreases in Arctic sea ice and what that means for global climate stability.
