The Tipping Points
Ep: 1 "Ice Sheets of Greenland"
In this six-part series, BC-based journalist and adventurer Bernice Notenboom heads to areas of the planet where climate systems may be nearing a tipping point. Bernice joins leading environmental scientists in the field as they explore the elements destabilizing our climate systems, and sees how changes in a remote area can – and do – dramatically impact other continents thousands of miles away, including North America. While there are no simple solutions, the series attempts to answer the pressing question: what is our timeline to change?
