The Climate Show Episode 7: Cryosphere special

Posted on 17 February 2011 by John Cook

The Climate Show just released Episode 7 a few hours ago and I'm determined to not procrastinate several weeks before blogging about it. Their special guest is Greenland expert Professor Jason Box who gives a fascinating interview. His perspective on current events in the Arctic -- from the dangers of permafrost methane, through rapid warming over Greenland and the potential impacts on sea level is essential listening and viewing. I talk to Glenn and Gareth about the most common skeptic misinformation to do with ice melt (coincidentally I posted James' blog post A basic overview of melting ice around the globe just as their Skype call came in).
