Feedback Loops

The Climate Emergency is Here

Greenhouse gases from fossil fuels, such as carbon dioxide and methane, are warming the planet. This warming is then setting in motion ice and permafrost melting, release of more greenhouse gases, more heat and storms – these are feedback loops, which then feed upon themselves, as well as interact with each other and spiral further out of control.

In this show, we sit down with Susan Gray Director and Bonnie Waltch, Senior Producer and writer of the five-part documentary series, “Climate Emergency: Feedback Loops.” Narrated by Richard Gere, this series of five short films features twelve leading climate scientists, who explore how human-caused emissions are triggering nature’s own warming loops. We also learn why natural warming loops have scientists alarmed—and why they feel we have less time to correct climate disruption than previously thought.

The film series had its official launch as a webcast with the Dalai Lama, Greta Thunberg and world-renowned scientists. The series is subtitled in 23 languages and can be paired with an educational science curriculum for students in grades 6-12. The films can be viewed in full at https://FeedBackLoopsClimate.com
