The effects of climate change can be visible in many aspects of our lives. However, do we realize how it affects what we don’t see? Tonight, we will take a deep dive to take a look at Bryoza, moss animals, we will check upon the situation of our neighbor, Gulf Stream and then we will see if there is a good way to fight the change of our climate.

Moss-animals: charming obscure creatures you'll like to know
Biodiversity conservation is today top priority but how can we preserve something we don't know? Bryozoa or moss-animals, a superdiverse group of aquatic invertebrates with >6000 extant and >15000 extinct species, are obscure to the public. Colonial as corals, Bryozoa appeared worldwide 300 million years before dinosaurs. Let's discover their scientific use from climate change to medical research.
The curious case of Gulf Stream collapse and its future
The Gulf Stream plays a key role in keeping Western Europe's climate mild by transporting the excess heat from the equator to higher latitudes. But, this is ocean current is debated to collapse soon that may be catastrophic for the world. The talks shares what's happening to Gulf Stream, is it a concern, and what's the future ahead of us in Norway and the rest of the world.
Engineering our way out of climate change
We are in the middle of a climate crisis, and need immediate cuts in greenhouse gas emissions to prevent a catastrophic outcome. But while conditions worsen, so-called climate engineering solutions are receiving increased attention. These include methods for CO2 from the atmosphere and even ways of blocking sunlight from reaching the Earth's surface. What are these options, and are they any good?
