Les Calotte Polaires et le Réchauffement Climatique - Ice Sheets and Global Warming

@ VOL 1 ON NOV 20, 2014

La réponse des deux calottes polaires (Groenland et Antarctique) à une hausse des températures est complètement différente.
La calotte du Groenland pourrait disparaitre à terme si on a une hausse de 3°C alors que celle de l'Antarctique pourrait atténuer dans un premier temps la hausse prévue du niveau de mers. Néanmoins, elle pourrait fondre à la base et se disloquer...

The response of both ice sheets to global change will be fully different.
The Greenland ice sheet would collapse if we have a temperature increase > 3°C while the Antarctica ice could mitigate the sea level rise in a first time. However, it could melt at its basis and break also in future ...

Kal Barteski: Polar Bear Artist

@ VOL 36 ON NOV 22, 2018

Artist and activist Kal Barteski is a notable figure in the arts scene in Winnipeg who is most famously known for her playful script work and polar bear art. She calls herself a "polar bear artist", and rightfully so as she's successfully spread her work throughout the city and beyond. Here in her PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk, Kal talks about polar bears (of course), why they're important, and what you can learn from them. She also talks about her work and her initiatives not only in Winnipeg but in Churchill, Manitoba, the polar bear capital of the world.

Kal's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 36, on November 22 2018, at the Park Theatre.
