The Raw Edge of Climate Science _on Ecoshock
ECOSHOCK — The Raw Edge of Climate Science
three top experts explain studies of extreme climate change — At the new raw edge of climate change, scientists Peter Brewer (Monterey Bay Aquarium Institute) and John Shepherd (University of Southampton) give us a peak into upcoming Royal Society conference on oxygen depletion in the oceans, as they warm. Seasoned space specialist James Kasting (Penn State) explains a possible end, with scalding seas & heat-tolerant bacteria as the only survivors.
In this program, we explore the new edge of climate science. Our guests dive into the ocean deep to find creeping dead zones stripped of oxygen. Another study describes a hot ending, with scalding seas, where heat-tolerant bacteria are the only survivors. We accompany the minds of some great scientists, experts with many papers published, as they study a dangerous future. Along the way, we get hints of how this planet really works. It’s your Radio Ecoshock.
Speakers: Peter Brewer, John Shepherd, James Kasting. All interviews by Alex Smith for Radio Ecoshock. Occasional music by Alex Smith.
