Watchwords: For Antarctic Clarity, Explore the Meanings of Collapse
Join Andy Revkin of Columbia University’s Climate School in the kickoff to Sustain What series aiming to boost climate clarity by exploring ”Watchwords” – Revkin’s shorthand for terms that can confuse, more than clarify, how to respond to global warming and local climate risks.
With new science hinting at the looming collapse of the Thwaites ice shelf, we'll get beyond hot "doomsday" headlines with Antarctic scientists Bethan Davies of Royal Holloway University of London and Karen Alley of the University of Manitoba and Rob Larter of the British Antarctic Survey, both of whom are on the International Thwaites Glacier Collaboration.
