Six Degrees Could Change the WorldStreaming Video - 2009
Based on Mark Lynas's Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet, this program explores the theory that Earth's average temperature could rise six degrees Celsius by the year 2100. One poignant degree at a time, the consequences of rising temperatures on Greenland's ice sheet and Himalayan glaciers, tropical coral reefs and the Amazon rainforest, and elsewhere across five continents are illustrated. In addition, some of the world's top climate researchers present existing technologies and remedies that can help in the battle to cool off the global thermometer. An alarming preview of a potentially catastrophic future-and a global call to action!
