Fighting Climate Change: Structural vs individual action | feat. @zentouro

So the other week, I got invited to a party! Great party! I’m gonna get down like it’s not even the anthropocene. God… who invited ClimateAdam?? He’s always steals all the ice to do his climate experiments… So… you got any ice..? What?? No! Worst. Party. Ever. So what do you do when you’re not […]

Ice and fire: How burning forests can help melt ice sheets

On the western edge of the Greenland ice sheet there’s a stretch of dirty grey ice known as the dark zone 400km long and 100km wide this dark zone is melting somewhere between double and ten times the rate of the white ice around it For a while, scientists thought it was a frozen relic […]

We’re melting the Arctic and reviving deadly germs

In December 2016, a remote community in Siberia experienced a mysterious outbreak. 90 people were hospitalized, and a 12-year-old boy died. Soon, Russian officials identified what had killed him: The deadly infectious disease anthrax. The outbreak had started among reindeer. To contain the spread, they burned over 2,000 reindeer carcasses. The strange thing was, there […]

#ICOScapes | Svartberget (Sweden) | Greenhouse gas observations

ICOS Svartberget is one of the few combined atmospheric and ecosystem stations within the ICOS measurement network. The ICOS measurements conducted here at the ICOS Svartberget station will improve our understanding of the carbon cycle of boreal forest and also the atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases and air pollutants over this boreal region. These measurements […]

#ICOScapes | Saclay (France) | Greenhouse gas observations

This is Saclay tower. It’s pretty special, because it is located close to Paris megacity with 10.5 million inhabitants. And on the other side we also have the more rural area of Île-de-France. So depending on the wind conditions we can have really different gradients of greenhouse gas concentrations. Well this urban station, like in […]

Why does CO2 cause the Greenhouse Effect? | Climate Chemistry

So just a few days ago, I had a date… Wait is this meant to be a date?? Yes, it’s November 3rd. You know that’s not what I meant— Oo good idea, let’s talk about climate change. But I didn’t even — So probably my favourite thing about the greenhouse effect… Oh now there’s a […]

Climate change and the greenhouse gas factor

[Theme music plays] (Glen Paul) G’day and welcome to CSIROvod, I’m Glen Paul. Climate change is a serious threat to the planet and greenhouse gas concentrations are believed to be a major contributor. In this vod cast we’re going to meet scientists working at measuring greenhouse gas concentrations over time, and the finding that they’ve […]

Hey Bill Nye, ‘How Do Greenhouse Gases Trap Photons in Our Atmosphere’? #TuesdaysWithBill

Hello Mr. Nye. Happy Tuesday. My name is Billy. I’m a big fan and I have a question about climate change. If the photons from the sun are trapped in our atmosphere by our greenhouse gases then how come those same greenhouse gases don’t block photons from the sun from ever entering our atmosphere? Is […]

#ICOScapes | Jungfraujoch (Switzerland) | Greenhouse gas observations

Jungfraujoch is the highest station in the ICOS network. In contrast to most of the ICOS stations that equip with tall towers on rather flat terrain we are here in a very complex terrain in the Swiss alps and we’re sitting on a kind of a natural tall tower at 3500 metres above sea level. […]
