The Climate Show Episode 12: twisters, ozone and Google in the sun

Posted on 6 May 2011 by John Cook

The Climate Show have just released Episode 12. Ozone is the centrepiece this week, with Dr Olaf Morgenstern of NIWA's Central Otago atmospheric science lab (celebrating its 50th birthday at the moment) explaining the ins and outs of the ozone holes north and south, and their impacts on the climate system. Plus tornadoes, heatwaves, UN negotiations at an impasse, more melting in the Arctic, airships, see-through solar cells and Google's solar towers. I didn't talk with Glenn and Gareth this eipsode as I was launching Climate Change Denial on the day of the recording. I haven't had a chance to listen to this ep yet - I like to download the iTunes audio onto my iPod and catch up on the latest climate news while driving or doing chores.

  1. Hey, it's 15 minutes shorter than last episode! :-) I like to watch the videos myself - the figures, charts, and images that are interspersed add a lot to the story being told. And it's easy enough to have it open in a browser window, while doing something else on the PC (as much as my wife might be amused by me watching a vidcast and playing a game or working on a presentation for work at the same time...) Either way, I guess I know what I'm doing with my Friday night, now (yes, I am that boring! ;-)
