Dr. Steffen has been monitoring the melting of the Greenlandic Ice Sheet for over 25 years through a series of remote unmanned data collection stations. His work is funded by NASA, the National Science Foundation and WSL (the Swiss Land Institute). In this film, he discusses how so many of the global phenomena associated with climate change are intertwined, and gives us a scary snapshot of what hte world might look like before the end of the 21st century. Filmed at Swiss Camp, Polar Research Station, Greenland (69 degrees latitude, 49 degrees longitude), Madagascar, and other parts of the world.
