The idea that millions of years ago the earth was a frozen planet with mountains of towering ice and blankets of snow hundreds of feet thick is not a new one, but is that really how our world once looked? Two Geophysicists from the University of Chicago don’t think so.
Based on new calculations using physical theory and global climate models, the idea that the Earth was once more mud than snow is now a possibility.
Join C2ST and University of Chicago’s Drs. Dorian Abbot & Raymond Pierrehumbert as we look to unlock our planet’s true climate history.
