Ed was a lead author in December 2008 of a major report to the U.S. Climate Change Science Program explaining the dynamics and potential for rapid and unanticipated climate change. He and a coauthor also published an article in Science on October 3, 2008 analyzing ice cores from Antarctica and the connection between warmer temperatures, rising carbon dioxide concentrations, and changing ocean currents. It is anticipated that their findings will improve understanding of future climate trends.
