After the warming( Visual )

Using a "virtual reality computer model," social journalist James Burke looks back at various global warming scenarios from the perspective of a possible year 2050. In part one, he shows how life on Earth has always been altered by changing weather patterns. The Vikings in the new world were wiped out by a "little ice age," that set harsh conditions leading to the Black Plague. In the 1700's, a warm period resulted in abundant food, a population explosion and fostered the Industrial Revolution. It was nature that altered the destiny of life on Earth. Man has now become the trigger with the technology to make subtle but ominous changes on our planet. In part two, Burke traces various ways that man could respond to the growing environmental crises. Shows the consequences of increases in air temperature, deforestation, rainfall, and shifts in weather patterns. The impact of global warming on food supply is explored. Various scenarios show the results of international initiatives under consideration that attempt to lessen the consequences. Explores strategies already the subject of international debate: a Law of the Atmosphere, carbon-emissions tax incentives and a global "carbon budget" between advanced and developing nations
