Global warming has increased Earth’s temperature by about 1 degree Fahrenheit in the last several decades. Unless dramatic adjustments are made in how energy is used and produced, the planet is expected to warm at least several degrees more by the end of this century. Accompanying this increase in temperatures will be monumental changes in wind, precipitation and temperature patterns, causing profound ecological and human health impacts. People need to know how their piece of the world will be affected. We learn best through experience. By bringing well-researched reporting into people’s homes — through websites, radio, and print media — Dan Grossman Media brings decades of hands-on experienceand scientific know-how to the viewer/ listener in an approachable, easy-to-understand, yet precise, manner.
Sea Level Research Site Launched
Dan has completed a new website on the sea level research of geochemist Maureen Raymo. The site uses computer animations and interactive features to explain how Raymo seeks to anticipate future sea level by studying sea level during the Pliocene era, about 3 million years ago.
Sea Level Research Videos Completed
Dan has completed three short documentaries about research on sea level rise. View them by clicking on links in the lower right hand corner of the Sea Change website, or connect to them directly:
