What’s happening to the polar ice caps? One UNCW researcher, Till Wagner, has visited the Arctic and Antarctic to find out. We’ll hear more about how he models icebergs and what he’s learning about the global climate system.

The Coastal Resources Commission is taking a more cautious approach with regards to documenting sea level rise.  The group’s science panel became a lightning rod when it was suggested it didn’t consider differing viewpoints on climate change – an assertion the board disputes.  Legislation was introduced that required them to come out with another assessment in 2016 that says all available data must be considered.  Commission chairman Bob Emory says that’s fine and that’s what they were doing anyway.
