Climate Change Daily Vid August 20 1017: Greenland Ice Sheet Yielding Clues of Climate Change

Scientists are drilling down through kilometers of Arctic ice to read the world's climate history as a way to predict the planet's future.

“It was 2 in the afternoon on Friday, 4 July 1980 when Willi Dansgaard came and asked me if I wanted to go to Greenland and work on the drilling project for eight weeks. I thought it sounded exciting and was already on my way by Tuesday morning. We flew to Greenland and further into the Dye3 drilling site on the ice with a Twin Otter. I had no idea what I was supposed to do. The idea had been that I would cut the ice cores, but when I came down into the drilling hall, Niels Gundestrup pulled me into the drill control room and now I had to learn to drill ice cores. Among the researchers, Henrik Clausen was also very interested in history and he would say that now we had now reached this layer and it corresponded to the time in which the French Revolution broke out and that they had been cold years, which meant poor harvests and hunger, or now we were in the years when the Vikings went out and settled in Iceland and Greenland. The ice cores could tell about the climate in the different periods and what impact it might have had on the course of history and I was wildly fascinated,” explains Peder Steffensen.

Today’s young people can and should hold their parents’ generation to account for their present actions. They can elicit an emotional response that can motivate action. If thinking about the lives of unborn future generations seems too abstract to motivate you to act, try instead looking a young child or grandchild in the eye and asking yourself what sort of future you are leaving for them. There is something that, on reflection, many adults would surely find repugnant in the idea that they will leave their children a damaged planet that will radically affect their life possibilities.

Kiribati President Anote Tong

"…I remember I had been trying to convince him to visit Kiribati and he did in 2011. He came to Kiribati and I remember he went to visit one of these communities that was flooded every time there is very high tides and there was this young boy who stepped up to the Secretary General and said Mr. Secretary General, you are a very important man you know, is there something that you can do to ensure I will have a future, that I will have a home. And the Secretary General came back and he said Mr. President I have been listening to you at the General Assembly but I never truly understood what it was you trying to communicate but now I do and I feel and I understand I would do everything that I can”
