Expedition Earth - An Explorer's Guide to a Planet in Peril


Expedition Earth - An Explorer's Guide to a Planet in Peril is a new public lecture by Professor Iain Stewart, which has now been shared on YouTube.

“We live on a rock-coated metal ball hurtling at 66,000 miles per hour through space, yet despite our breakneck orbit through a crowded cosmic neighbourhood it is the changes happening closer to home that present the greatest threats to humanity.” Professor Iain Stewart MBE, Director of the Sustainable Earth Institute and Professor of Geoscience Communication. 

This is the big picture story of that planet we call ‘home’ – its history, how it works and what that means for us living on it - told through remarkable imagery and amazing science. Listen to explore the Earth’s natural violence, the un-natural shifts in our oceans and climate, and the resulting global challenges that threaten how we live on this extraordinary human planet.
