Co-sponsored by SEJ and the Knight Center for Environmental Journalism at Michigan State University, this fellowship opportunity is for journalists and scientists to discuss ways to better help the public appreciate the risks and understand the choices they, their communities, and their governments face, during this June 9, 2012 event in Cleveland, OH.

"CO2 Was Hidden in the Ocean During the Ice Age"

"Why did the atmosphere contain so little carbon dioxide (CO2) during the last Ice Age 20,000 years ago? Why did it rise when the Earth's climate became warmer? Processes in the ocean are responsible for this, says a new study based on newly developed isotope measurements. This study has now been published in the scientific journal 'Science' by scientists from the Universities of Bern and Grenoble and the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research in the Helmholtz Association."
