The recent awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to former Vice-President Al Gore and climatologists, conitinues to strengthen the need for worldwide awareness of global warming.

Global warming has been most noticeable in the Antarctic. Significant changes in the environment have resulted in the melting of the polar ice caps, increased water levels and the threat of extinction to animal life. Marc’s guest this hour is award-wining photographer, lecturer and environmental activist Sebastian Copeland. In his new book Antarctica: the Global Warning Copeland documents in photos and text, his personal insights about the increasingly rapid pace at which the arctic regions are melting.

  1. Thank you for this wonderful show. This excellent show is another conscious raising step but now it is time for solutions. What can be done about global warming? Where are those who would offer solutions?

  2. If you are interested in global warming, and the impact that it is having on America’s wild places, you should attend a talk by Jonathan Waterman at the Govans Branch of the Enoch Pratt Library on October 30 at 6:30pm. Mr. Waterman’s work focuses on the arctic region, in particular the collision of politics, nature, and culture over the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. I would highly recommend his book “Where the Mountains are Nameless: Passion and Politics in the Arctic Refuge”.
