  • How will Climate Change Affect the North Atlantic Current?

    Core samples have shown us that the last ice age caused the North Atlantic Drift to slow down, but it is thought that its path changed between then and now. However, the study of past climate shows that the Gulf Stream has stopped completely several times in the past, causing rapid climate change.

  • Tropical Birds Feel the Heat of Climate Change

    The wide range of numbers on future possible extinctions is because of the many decisions about climate change that must still be made that could affect the outcome, such as will carbon reductions mitigate temperature rises?

  • How far can a polar bear swim?

    Evolution is an amazing thing and perhaps one day people will look back on these studies to demonstrate just how astonishing it can be.
