2022 had its fair share of bad news, but there was also some really good news that was was overshadowed, according to our oceans guy Boris Worm. He studies the oceans at Dalhousie University and dropped into Studio A to start off our new year on an optimistic note.
A scientific paper out last week describes the first sightings of huge aggregations of fin whales around Elephant Island in Antarctica. Our oceans guy Boris Worm looked into these findings and what they might mean for the health of our oceans.
People are remembering Dalhousie biology professor Jeff Hutchings as a principled advocate for science and as someone who was committed to sharing accessible scientific information to the public. He died on the weekend at age 63.
Mainstreet’s oceans guy Boris Worm tells host Jeff Douglas about the discovery of 60-million icefish whose nests are occupying 240-square-kilometers of the ocean floor off Antarctica. And this is weird— they have clear blood.
There’s a lot of talk right now about the effects of climate change and the challenges involved in mitigation, but new research from the Global Carbon Project comes to some surprising conclusions about the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Mainstreet’s oceans guy Boris Worm spoke with host Jeff Douglas about the new findings.
We call on these familiar voices to help us make climate change science more accessible… Jonathan Torrens, Jenn Grant, Old Man Luedecke, Gabrielle Papillon, Emma Stevens, Meaghan Smith, Rebecca Thomas, Stephanie Domet, Costas Halavrezos, and Keyonah Marshall. And our oceans guy Boris Worm joins host Jeff Douglas in our studio in Halifax to answer questions.
Our oceans guy Boris Worm tells us about a new study that tries to quantify the expected impact of climate change on marine animals. He tells host Jeff Douglas, the impact will vary depending on how much we do to do reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
