Presenter: Bonnie Waltch

Everyone has heard about global warming, but few understand how environmental feedback loops amplify the warming even further. With captivating illustrations and interviews with leading climate scientists, this 5-part science documentary explores how human activity is setting off earth’s own warming loops that are pushing the climate to a point of no return—from the melting ice and snow in the Arctic to the atmospheric jet stream to the thawing of permafrost—and what we can do to stop them.

Teach climate change with the following free resources: Climate Emergency: Feedback Loops. The resources also include an accompanying science standards-based curriculum for grades 6 -12 and discussion guides suitable for university level and community groups. The materials are freely available for use by teachers and students at Ranging in length from 8 – 14 minutes, the films are ideal for classroom use.
