Thin Ice

Free - Short Clips

These pages contain videos showing climate scientists at work. The videos provide more in-depth discussion of the topics covered in Thin Ice, the movie.

Most video material was filmed between June 2007 and September 2009, prior to the UN Copenhagen meeting in December 2009, and a few were in 2010. Since then, research has continued apace, summarised in another IPCC Assessment Report in 2013/14 and on-going reviews on specific topics. Since then global temperatures have continued to rise, as have CO2 levels.

CO2 is a bigger problem than most other greenhouse gases because it takes thousands of years to be taken up by earth, ocean and biosphere (20% remains after 10,000 years).
