HBO series highlights our climate change research

Posted by Richard Primack

A new HBO series called Saving My Tomorrow features kids telling their stories about the need to protect the environment. Children are shown leading protest, at rallies, speaking from the heart, and singing powerful songs, all in defense of the environment. The need to address the dangers of climate change is a central theme.

One of the featured examples is how the observations on flowering times made by Henry David Thoreau can be used to demonstrate the effects of climate change. Of course, this is based on the research carried out by our group. The program likens the observations of Thoreau to a postcard from the past enabling us to see our impacts on the environment. With an audience of millions, this HBO program has given our research even broader exposure, especially to children and parents.

See our research featured at the beginning of this video:
