Sunday, October 31st, 2021

Spend the evening witnessing the power of Mother Nature (Smithsonian Saturday 13 November from 4PM).
Programmes include:

YELLOWSTONE SUPERVOLCANO – Beneath the beauty of Yellowstone National Park lies a ticking time bomb: asupervolcano that’s overdue for its next eruption. When that day inevitably comes, it will trigger the end of civilisationas we know it. See how recent earthquake swarms and other signals of activity have put scientists on high alert andwitness the worldwide effects of cataclysmic eruption, which experts predict will produce energy equivalent to the detonation of 1,000 nuclear bombs.
EARTH UNDER WATER – Experience the story of extreme sea level rise – predicted to affect our world over the next few centuries due to rapidly increasing carbon dioxide levels and climbing global temperatures. The film examines the science that helps to predict future sea level rise. EARTH UNDER WATER takes viewers to Antarctica, which contains 90% of the world’s ice. If Antarctica and Greenland melted,the world’s oceans would rise by 230 feet. Using currentclimate models, scientists predict a maximum six-foot sealevel rise this century. If emissions continue increasing at the current rate, the rise in global temperature would be so great, that Antarctica goes into rapid meltdown, causing cities like London to flood by 2300. Although sea level rise is largely inevitable, the speed and extent of it is uncertainand depends on how much more CO2 is emitted…
