Earth and the moon
"Why does the earth alone sustain life? Scientists have found evidence of rivers on Mars, volcanoes on Io, and tectonics on Venus. But only the earth has all three features. Scientists have postulated that the answer lies in the earth's relationship to the moon. Astronomers are now scanning the galaxy for other habitable planets with the same configuration as the earth and the moon."--Container.

Thin ice
Climate science has been coming under increasing attack. In response, geologist Simon Lamb took his camera to his climate science colleagues around the world to find out what's really going on. Thin Ice reveals the human face of climate science. It also provides an accessible introduction to the latest Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Thin Ice is a joint initiative between Oxford University (United Kingdom) Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand), and London-based DOX Productions. The project began over a cup of coffee at a Climate Change and Governance conference in Wellington in March 2006. Peter Barrett (VUW) suggested to Simon Lamb (Oxford) that he make a film about it with his friend David Sington (DOX Productions). The aim from the outset was to give people from all walks of the life the chance to see the astonishing range of human activity as well as scientific endeavour that is required to help us understand our changing climate. Our idea was then we would all be better able to decide both individually and collectively how we might deal with it.
