Take away the politics, policy, and pundits and travel north to Alaska, home of one of the last frontiers on our planet, untouched by human hands. Soil scientists have discovered a reality: We’re losing millions of acres of interior Alaska’s permafrost.

By the end of the century we’re looking at fully 20 percent of the carbon on the planet going from the terrestrial system into the atmosphere.

Between Earth and Sky is a film about Alaska, and the arctic soils field tour led by Dr. Chien-Lu Ping. Through the lens of Alaska we can see how climate change is affecting our entire world, and through the soil science tour we can better understand what these changes mean.
