The plight of the Antarctic-based Adelie penguin reveals much about the future of our planet, according to UAB University Professor Jim McClintock, Ph.D. The story of the seabird’s struggle to adjust to the warming climate is captured in “Ghost Rookeries,” a four-minute film produced by the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation and narrated by actor Harrison Ford, who is on the foundation's board of advisers. The journey comes alive through the prose from McClintock’s book, “Lost Antarctica: Climate Change on the Antarctic Peninsula.”

The latest green roof project is one of the first developments by UAB’s Sustainability Committee to come to fruition.
