"Turn Mankind's Darkest Hour Into its Finest" TESTTT
From the makers of March of the Penguins. A polar bear family and Seel a, the walrus, face a melting world.
Al Gore award winning movie on Climate Change
A feature length presentation from the acclaimed History Sunday series on The History Channel. This program examines the cataclysmic consequences of a major shift in the world’s climate which occurred during recorded history. For almost 500 years, the "Little Ice Age” impacted civilization in a myriad of ways, profoundly changing the course of human events. It provides a graphic object lesson as to why we must take climate issues seriously.
Presenter: Prof. Kerry Emanuel, Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
After Katrina, the link between global warming and a perceived increase in severe weather became a critical debate topic in the science and policy arenas. Prof. Kerry Emanuel (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), in his 2007 AMS Haurwitz Memorial Lecture, examines this question. While sea surface temperature plays a role in tropical storm intensity, it represents only part of the complex puzzle. He also details an emerging theory that suggests hurricanes and typhoons may play a major, and heretofore, unexpected role in climate dynamics.

After the disastrous 2005 hurricane season, which brought Katrina, Rita, Wilma and more, the link between global climate change, warming sea, surface temperature and hurricanes was front page news. Does climate change affect hurricanes? As Prof. Kerry Emanuel explains in the second in his series of lectures, the answer is yes...but the answer is also complex given the many factors involved.
Before the March of the Penguins and Happy Feet, there was this great IMAX™ film about the southern polar regions. Amazing video above and below the south polar ice cap. An aid to understanding this critical region's effect on climate. And yes, it has Penguins!
After 4+ billion years of climate change, is global warming simply a naturally occurring phenomenon, or the result of human activity, or a mix of both? This History Channel special documents the adventures of scientists who explore the skies and oceans to examine and document climate change impacts. They explore the sun, the ocean depths and dig deep into the earth to study continental movement, the remnants of gigantic meteor impacts and volcanic activity. Climate is ALWYS changing, but exploring the whys and wherefores is the challenge presented here. (Package is made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials).
NOVA documents a climate conundrum ...is reduced sunlight reaching Earth cooling the atmosphere and also masking the full impact of global warming? Scientists investigate the impacts of anthropogenic aerosols… yet another very inconvenient truth.
NOVA joins the front lines on America’s war of wildfires. A detailed history of the mismanagement of America’s forests and the increasingly dire consequences of a century of fuel buildup. Yellowstone, Los Alamos and fire at the urban-wildland interface. Do we fight fire with fire?
Alec Baldwin narrates a degree by degree scenario of global warming’s consequences, from vineyards thriving in England to sled dog teams being retired in Greenland. NASA’s James Hansen is among those to appear. A National Geographic presentation
A gripping documentary on America’s worst climate disaster, including perhaps the gutsiest weather forecast of the 1930s made by Hugh Bennett, the father of soil conservation, while testifying before Congress. Highly recommended. From the PBS Series, The American Experience.
A gorgeous IMAX™ film narrated by William Shatner in which the cause of the seasons is clearly and gorgeously explained. And Vivaldi’s Four Seasons also star with Pinchas Zuckerman and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra!
