Deep within Antarctica’s polar ice tiny bubbles of air are trapped, each a perfectly preserved record of the Earth’s atmosphere from the time the ice was formed. French scientist Claude Lorius made this discovery on a research mission in his 20s and subsequently dedicated his life to forming a timeline of the changes in the planet’s air quality over thousands of years. Drilling to ever greater depths through the ice to collect evidence, Lorius faced the practical challenges of survival in harsh isolated conditions as well as battling political shifts within the scientific community. It was Lorius’ research that first brought hard evidence of climate change to the world at large, and with it the undeniable impact of human activity on the environment.
