Change In the Arctic:
What Does It Mean for Planet Earth?

What is happening in the land of the midnight sun? To inhabitants of the Arctic, images of polar bears stranded on shrinking ice, thin ice breaking beneath sled dogs’ feet, roads buckling from melted permafrost, and houses slipping into the sea are no longer news. The Arctic is changing fast. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change projects ice-free conditions by mid century. Join Dr. Pat Abbott for a thought-provoking exploration of what change in the Arctic means for Planet Earth.
