A World Without Ice: Man’s Impact on Climate Change

Henry N. Pollack, Ph.D., Professor of Geophysics, University of Michigan

Ice carved Earth’s landscape to its present state – the sharp Alpine peaks of Europe, the vast Great Lakes of North America, the majestic valleys of Yosemite National Park and the deeply incised fjords of Norway. But as the climate-change debate becomes more heated, are we at risk of losing these precious formations?
