A comprehensive documentary about sea level rise and its global impacts

How high will the oceans rise? Estimates that were considered panic-mongering just a few years ago are now in the realm of possibility. By 2100, the coasts of our planet could look different. 

The crucial question is: How will Greenland and Antarctica develop? Science is just beginning to include the complex dynamics in its forecasts. The results will determine how the coasts prepare for the impending threat. Up to what level can we protect ourselves? When will we have to think about abandoning areas because the cost of protection is no longer proportional to what is to be protected? Countries like Britain have already decided to abandon whole regions.

Lecture " Myths about global warming. Season 2020-2021”
While states sign agreements and develop programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we continue to develop old and give birth to new myths about global warming. Snow drifts in Texas! Extreme snowfall in Moscow! The Gulf Stream stop! At the lecture, we will discuss the current status of climate change - and why the latest news does not contradict it.
Lecturer: Alexander Chernokulsky, climatologist, Senior Researcher at the Obukhov Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, PhD of Physical and Mathematical Sciences.
