Description
Does it seem warmer each year? Or is it actually getting colder? While the climate moves naturally between warm and cold, scientists are questioning if these fluctuations are adversely influenced by humans and their activities. Nova travels to the Antarctic in Nova: Warnings From the Ice with scientists as they study the ice for clues to the possible directions of global weather. By analyzing air bubbles within the ice and collecting data on the movement of ice sheets, scientists (working under extreme conditions) expect to gain insight into the changing pattern of temperature shifts. ~ Alice Day, Rovi

display_descriptionEleven thousand years ago, the world's temperatures suddenly rose drastically, creating a climate shift within a human lifetime that is nearly unimaginable. Miles deep, the frigid expanse holds 70 percent of the world's fresh water in a deep freeze cold enough to shatter steel. Recently things have been heating up. In 1995, an iceberg the size of Rhode Island broke off from the Larsen ice shelf along the Antarctic coast, hinting at a potential meltdown. If the entire West Antarctic Ice Sheet were to follow suit, sea level would rise by almost 20 feet, wiping out entire cities, redrawing coastlines, and leave millions homeless.
