Stephanie Chasteen speaks with Jerry Osborne of the University of Calgary about his work studying glaciers to understand how the climate is changing in recent years. Join us as we chat with Chris Mooney, Washington correspondent for Seed Magazine and author of Storm World: Hurricanes, Politics, and the Battle Over Global Warming and The Republican War on Science. His blog can be found at http://scienceblogs.com/intersection. Exploratorium Producer Mary Miller chats with Marika Holland, Climate Modeler for the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Dr. Holland co-authored a recent study projecting that the summer Arctic sea ice could completely disappear by 2040. Join Mary Miller in conversation with Mark Serreze, Senior Research Scientist at the National Snow and Ice Data Center, as they discuss recent dramatic decreases in Arctic sea ice and what that means for global climate stability. Exploratorium physicist Paul Doherty chats with Richard Levy, a geologist, and Ross Powell, who’s the co-director of the ANDRILL project. They are drilling beneath the Antarctic seafloor, and pulling up sediment cores. By looking at the layers of the past, they hope to help us predict our future. What do the kids want to know? Join Kirk Bell's fifth grade class (from Children's Day School in San Francisco)as they chat with Holly Troy in Antarctica. Mr. Troy has spent many seasons at McMurdo station working with scientists. Join Pamela Schaller from the California Academy of Sciences as she discuss penguins and how climate change impacts them. Penguin researcher David Ainley joins us via telephone from his tent at Cape Royds, Antarctica. Dr. Ainley has been studying Adelie penguins for many seasons from his remote encampment. A century after publication of Einstein's famous papers on light and relativity, this most celebrated of Nobel Laureates will be the subject of a talk by award-winning science writer K.C. Cole. She'll discuss the ways in which Einstein continues to influence physics today, from detecting gravity waves to understanding string theory. Can pets predict earthquakes? Do quakes happen more often at certain times of the day or year? And could a really big one mean the end of California? Exploratorium geologist Eric Muller separates earthquake fact from fiction.
