Climate Change in Our Backyard - Not so far removed - Discovering the changes at the poles and implications for Colorado
Thousands of miles away, icy frontiers exist in what seem to be a world completely removed from our own. Polar bears roam for miles across floating ice platforms to hunt seals. Penguins clumsily waddle and gracefully dive to escape the jaws of killer whales and leopard seals. Ice coats the surface of the ocean for hundreds of miles and continent-sized land ice towers as high as a sky scraper. Here, some of the harshest conditions on the planet comprise the normal day-to-day. These regions are experiencing changes that are occurring faster than expected, but with the change occurring so far away, could it possibly impact us here in Colorado and the continental US?
