Ice at the North Pole describes the current situation up there. The connection between melting northern ice and sea level rise will be approached. Satellite photos from the last 30 years will illustrate this section of the talk.  Other large bodies of ice, Greenland and Antarctica, will be covered briefly.

Mr. Day will draw on his extensive reading on this subject, which includes:
• Climate Wars,  by Gwynne Dyer
• The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet   by Michael Mann
• The Ice at the End of the World,  by Jon Gertner
• This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate,  by Naomi Klein

Mr. Day follows “Climate Adam” and Peter Beckwith on YouTube.
