[edit] Information

Paul Rose is a modern-day explorer. He's spent many years in Antarctica and the Arctic, organising scientific expeditions. Now he sees evidence that the polar regions are in danger from climate change. So he decides to try and find out the truth about global warming: what's really going on with our climate, and what's it going to mean for the future?

He starts by asking how the climate has changed in the past. Are the changes we're seeing now part of a natural cycle, or are they something we've brought upon ourselves? And what can Viking voyages, the freezing of the Thames and ancient Bronze Age settlements on Dartmoor tell us about how our climate is changing?

His quest comes up against a fundamental problem - a lack of computing power necessary to model what effect global warming will have in the future. But he meets a scientist with a brilliant idea. By making use of your computer - and thousands like it all over the world - we can carry out the largest climate experiment ever, and work out what is really going to happen to our climate over the next 50 years.
