Drilling Back to the Future: Climate Clues from Ancient Ice on Greenland

Just before the last Ice Age, temperatures were 5 to 9 degrees F warmer than today, and global sea level was 13 to 20 feet higher. In July 2009, Climate Central traveled to Greenland to visit scientists drilling into ancient ice for clues about this chapter of the past, and what it might say about the potential effects of global warming this century.

Greenland: Life on the Greenland Ice Sheet

An international team of scientists just wrapped up their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile core of solid ice in Greenland, bringing them one step closer to reconstructing the climate of the past 130,000 years. Accompanied by a production team from StormCenter Communications, Dr. Heidi Cullen spent some time with these scientists on the ice and in their underground trenches to find out what life is like in this remote place.

Greenland: Ice Cores and Climate

An international team of climate scientists, working on the NEEM research project, has just completed their first season toward drilling a 1.6-mile deep vertical core of solid ice in Greenland, looking for clues about ancient and future climates. In July of 2009, Dr. Heidi Cullen traveled to Greenland with a production team from StormCenter Communications to visit the team, and discuss their findings.

Washington: Warming and Wildfires

Wildfires are on the rise in the State of Washington, as they are in much of the American West—and climate change looks at least partly responsible. This report explores the connections between rising temperatures, melting snows, multiplying beetles and the increase in wildfires as well as the toll fires are taking on forests and the people who live in and around them.
