In studying the changing climate in the Arctic region, you can foreshadow what patterns we will detect where we live. In his new book, ‘Brave New Arctic: the Untold Story of the Melting North’, Mark Serreze, a renowned climatologist and Director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center, has come to the disquieting conclusion that surface temperatures in the Arctic are rising twice as fast as the rest of the globe and that man’s impact is contributing substantially to the change. He now believes we are Geo-engineering our own planet and that we’ve entered the Anthropocene. He will get your attention in this podcast with his calm, yet authoritative, demeanor. While you may meet people who question climate change, none will have the credentials and the experience of this man, who came to his conclusions reluctantly. Take a listen.
