We know a lot about how carbon dioxide (CO2) levels can drive climate change, but how about the way that climate change can cause fluctuations in CO2 levels? New research from an international team of scientists reveals one of the mechanisms by which a colder climate was accompanied by depleted atmospheric CO2 during past ice ages.

The overall goal of the work is to better understand how and why the earth goes through periodic climate change, which could shed light on how man-made factors could affect the global climate.

Global Perspectives on Environmental Justice

In spring 2017, PEI is launching Global Perspectives on Environmental Justice. This event series will feature writers, filmmakers, other visual artists, and scholars whose work engages fundamental questions of environmental justice. Our visitors will address the political, imaginative and ethical challenges that result from unequal exposure to environmental risk and unequal access to environmental resources.
