Some news from New Zealand
« on: March 17, 2013, 07:19:53 PM »
Local climate scientists seem to be grabbing the opportunity brought by our current drought to get the topic of CC out into the media:

Hopefully they will gain some significant traction because that potty peer is due in our neighbourhood next month, actually in the next town. How did I know, the info sent by the local branch of the Royal Society. Sigh....

Also here's info about a new doco, "Thin Ice", due out next month. And they say it will be available online for a small fee.
"In recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so geologist Simon Lamb took his camera to find out what is really going on from his climate science colleagues. Simon followed scientists at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the USA.  They talk about their work, and their hopes and fears, with a rare candour and directness. This creates an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet's changing climate."
Have a look a the great lineup of scientists interviewed in it & some of the short video clips:

Not sure I'm posting this in the best place, Neven will move it if needbe!
