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.

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.
