Celebrate Earth Day with NOAA scientists

What does Earth Day mean to scientists at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) - especially during our current era of climate change?

In a new video, NOAA GFDL scientists share their thoughts on what Earth Day means to them and what brings them hope for our environment.

"I think we're at a stage now in society where a much larger fraction of the population understands the importance of this climate crisis we're facing," said Kirsten Findell, research physical scientist at NOAA GFDL. "So I think now we're at a place where Earth Day can really motivate many more people to really recognize the importance of our climate system and the role that we as humanity play."
