Tracking the Climate - Two-part documentary

Everyone is talking about climate change. But what happens when a natural system suddenly flips out of balance? We accompany Dutch adventurer and science journalist Bernice Notenboom on a journey around the globe.

First stop: Greenland. The world's largest island is still covered by a thick crust of ice kilometers thick. But temperatures this spring rose to as much as 16 degrees higher than normal.

Bernice Notenboom has already had so many adventures during her research into climate change. Now she wants researchers on a global expedition to show her what concerns them most.

Bernice and the researchers row out to an ice spit that has melted more in the past decade than in the previous hundred years. So how are the Greenlanders dealing with this situation? From Greenland, we continue into the tropical rainforests of the Amazon region. Bernice goes to a research station that is hard to get to because it is high in the treetops. The gauges there show that the warming of the surrounding oceans is causing a gradual drying out of the rainforest area, which is increasingly threatening biodiversity.

Lakes that form in permafrost release methane into the air. The gas is produced when organic matter at the bottom of a lake thaws and is decomposed by bacteria.

Alsace: the picking season for red wine grapes there has shifted 30 days forward in just 30 years. Faced with this threat to their livelihoods, winemakers are experimenting with heat-resistant varieties of grapes from the Mediterranean. From Greenland to South Africa, from the Amazon to the Himalayas and across Europe, Bernice Notenboom makes us shockingly aware of how noticeable the effects of climate change around the world already are.
