The White Desert

Nov 3, 2016

This summer, the Cousteau Divers and Tällberg Foundation visited the EGRIP research station in Greenland to understand the history and man-made effects of climate change in the region. As part of their mini-series, Cousteau Divers have released a video exploring the White Desert of Greenland.

At the forefront of climate change research, our journey revealed some key findings including that sea levels could rise by a dozen meters in our lifetime, because of the level of CO2 already released into the atmosphere.

This video is about Greenland and Climate Change. The poles are melting, and one degree of atmospheric temperature increase is equivalent to a 20 meter sea level rise… The EASTGrip research station is studying this at the forefront of climate research.
