Episode 20: Earth Transformed

Originally Aired March 18th, 2016

The 2016 University of Arizona College of Science Lecture Series explored Climate Change and its impacts. No longer merely abstract projections for the future, instead, they are on-going and growing challenges for both humans and many of the natural systems upon which we depend. Globally, changes in the oceans, ice sheets and atmosphere provide clear fingerprints of human causes, but also important lessons for society to learn as we seek solutions.
