Your Legal Planet Weekend Movie: Watch the Greenland Ice Sheet Melt!

Forget the cinema or Netflix. Legal Planet can meet your movie viewing needs. This video highlights research done by Dr. Laurence Smith at the UCLA Department of Geography, who spent the summer on the Greenland ice sheet tracking its melting. Somehow seeing the melting happen from the ground has more of an emotional impact for me than seeing the depressing, yet oddly abstract, view from space.

  1. Will carbon credits slow the Greenland Ice Sheet Melt? Can the outcome of the election slow the melt? Does solar energy slow it down? Is there anything that we can do?
