Canadian Climate Literacy Survey

Canadian Climate Literacy Survey

Learning for a Sustainable Future, in collaboration with Dr. Ellen Field and Associate Professor Paul Berger from the Faculty of Education at Lakehead University and Leger Research Intelligence Group, with support from SSHRC, is undertaking a national survey to gain an understanding of current levels of knowledge and perceptions of climate change and to assess the education system role in addressing climate change education.

This survey is targeting the general public, parents of K-12 students, students ages 12 -18, teachers, administrators, teacher educators, and other interested educators across the country.

How we look kilometers below the Antarctic ice sheet

Antarctica is a vast and dynamic place, but radar technologies — from World War II-era film to state-of-the-art miniaturized sensors — are enabling scientists to observe and understand changes beneath the continent’s ice in unprecedented detail. Join radio glaciologist Dustin Schroeder on a flight high above Antarctica and see how ice-penetrating radar is helping us learn about future sea level rise — and what the melting ice will mean for us all.

Throughout Earth’s history, climate has varied greatly. For hundreds of millions of years, the planet had no polar ice caps. Without this ice, the sea level was 70 meters higher. At the other extreme, about 700 million years ago, Earth became almost entirely covered in ice, during an event known as “Snowball Earth.” Continue reading
