ECOSHOCK — The Third Rail: Radical Climate Change During It All

weather extremes expected during pandemic, crash and protest — While death and disease stalk nations & protests fill the streets, Nature will rock your world. New science shows the big ice sheets of Antarctica melted six times faster than now, just a few thousand years ago. Could sea level be pushed higher in just a few years? Back from his expedition, our guest is Professor Julian Dowdeswell, Director of the Scott Polar Research Institute at Cambridge. Then to Siberia, where zombie fires can rise out of the winter snow, & temperatures this spring are off the charts. Eyes-in-the-sky scientist Mark Parrington from the EU Copernicus service with a surprising take on global wildfires. Ready or not, the heat, storms and rising seas are showing up this year, and every year to come.
