Cryosphere in Crisis

We are losing our Cryosphere on this Earth. The Earth is becoming a much warmer place and the consequences will be profound in how it will affect humanity.

Join Dr. Peter Carter, Paul Beckwith and Regina Valdez as they discuss the critical state of our cryosphere and its impact on our climate systems. What is the cryosphere comprised of and what are the effects of its changes on our climate? Highlights include Arctic and glacier ice melt, albedo reflectivity, sea-level rise, photosynthesis and food security. Our panel discussion also highlights the thawing of permafrost and the impact of the release of methane, which is an abundant greenhouse gas.
