Description:

From the remote village of Gambell, Alaska, listener Bob Woolf can see the polar ice melting, and emailed us to ask if global warming would ever become irreversible. According to senior scientist Warren Washington of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, it probably already is, at least for the short term. That's because the greenhouse gases that are in the atmosphere now can last for decades or even centuries.
