- Program Description
As global warming turns up the heat, researchers are stunned to discover that our sun is actually growing dimmer. Increasing air pollution allows less and less sunlight to reach earth's surface, a 'global dimming' that disturbs rainfall patterns and is creates severe droughts. In an even more alarming twist, there is concern that recent success in solving the dimming problem is greatly accelerating global warming, melting ice caps and flooding coastal cities. NOVA examines a baffling climate conundrum and follows the disturbing implications of the discovery for our planet's future.
