Little Ice Age: Big Chill

Loading...
"Scientists call it the Little Ice Age--but its impact was anything but small. From 1300 to 1850, a period of cataclysmic cold caused havoc. It froze Viking colonists in Greenland, accelerated the Black Death in Europe, decimated the Spanish Armada, and helped trigger the French Revolution. The Little Ice Age reshaped the world in ways that now seem the stuff of fantasy--New York Harbor froze and people walked from Manhattan to Staten Island, Eskimos sailed kayaks as far south as Scotland, and 'the year without a summer' saw two feet of snow fell on New England one June and July. Could another catastrophic cold snap strike in the 21st century? Leading climatologists offer the latest theories, and scholars and historians recreate the history that could be a glimpse of things to come. [...]

Changing Climate?

Loading...
Explores the dynamic interplay between science and policymaking. Though the world community has come to recognize the threat of global warming, the economic interests of each country have thwarted the development of a unified strategy. In Europe, environmental groups have despaired of relying on governments to take action. Instead, they lobby the banks to withhold financing from industries that contribute to the greenhouse effect.

The Secret World [electronic resource]

The Tara Oceans research team came together to better understand the marine world, arguably the most important ecosystem on Earth. This program lays the groundwork for their three-year expedition, introducing the personnel, their on-board lab, and their mission-to learn more about plankton, and to gain insight into the health of the planet as a result. Viewers travel with the crew as they sail the western Mediterranean searching for plankton colonies and observing microscopic interactions between phytoplankton and zooplankton. The team also maps out a plan to draw up a complete planktonic inventory.

Man and the Oceans [electronic resource]

With no obvious predators to curb the population, humans are experiencing a growth in numbers that stands outside the laws of nature. What role does man play in the decreasing biodiversity of the earth, and of marine life in particular? In this program, the Tara Oceans researchers go to the Indian Ocean to investigate human influence on the health of the seas. Around the Austral Islands, the team finds copepods are being attacked by viruses, leading to speculation about the role of viruses in a balanced ecology. Sailing on, they encounter former fishing zones overrun by jellyfish and areas of damaged coral-troubling signs of rising oceanic temperatures.

Deserts [electronic resource]: Global Environments

Global warming is bad news - unless, of course, you're accustomed to life in the desert. Arid environments, which already cover one third of the Earth's land mass, are growing at an alarming rate, which means that they could conceivably become the new normal. In the next few decades, up to 35 percent of the world's terrain faces desertification with the lives and livelihoods of millions, if not billions, in jeopardy. Examining the dramatic changes in store for our planet, this program looks at what the global community should be doing to prepare, what actions are currently being taken, and how cultures which have thrived for centuries in extremely dry locations are passing on a range of skills and traditions designed to help cope with the "arid" life. Can this undervalued knowledge e [...]
