This full-length podcast gives you the full flavor of our Summer Institute. Our staff will tell you about our special month-long Institute, which offers a rich mix of hands-on activities based on Exploratorium exhibits, in-depth content discussions, classroom materials and activities, and machine shop experience. In this podcast, teacher participants tell you what they think about the Summer Institute and how it affected them. If you’re in a rush, this truncated version will give you information about our Summer Institute, but with less commentary from staff and participants than the full version. 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 he measures the power used by two lightbulbs--one incandescent and one fluorescent--that make the same amount of light. 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. Join us as we talk with Robert Henson, author of The Rough Guide to Climate Change. Stephanie Chasteen speaks with Zan Stine, a graduate student in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at the University of California at Berkeley, at the annual American Geophysical Union meeting. Mr. Stine tells us about his search for the reasons why summer is coming earlier than it did in the past. Stephanie Chasteen speaks with Jerry Osborne of the University of Calgary about his work studying glaciers to understand how the climate is changing in recent years.
