The following video presentation is by James McClintock, Endowed Professor of Polar and Marine Biology in the UAB Department of Biology. The lecture was given on September 28th, 2012 at the Theodore Haddin Arts and Sciences Forum on the campus of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

The presentation, Lost Antarctica: How Climate Change is Rewriting the Book on Polar Ecosystems, is about the rapid changes taking place in the polar ecosystem and how these changes are causing observable ecological impacts at all ecosystem levels, including society. The one hour lecture parallels McClintock’s nationally released book Lost Antarctica: Adventures in a Disappearing Land.

A “must-see” presentation, McClintock describes what is happening to Antarctica ecologically as a result of climate change, and how it will impact people’s lives.
