Climate change is an overwhelming issue, especially if you know it's happening and humans are causing it. This presentation will inform the layperson about scientific consensus on climate change and its impact on ice sheets, based on recent research data. Learn how science gets done using ice-penetrating radar and GPS and how you can debunk pseudo-science. Join glaciologist and polar adventurer Dr. Ginny Catania as she addresses what we know about polar ice sheets, what we have left to find out, and what it's like to conduct science in some of the most extreme environments on the planet.
