"Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth's Climate Engine"

"Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth's Climate Engine" What makes Earth so conducive to life?  What drives the engine of weather and climate on our planet?  What connects seemingly independent systems on Earth to create and influence the planetís climate?  Follow the energy trail from the sun to Earth and into the interwoven systems of atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere to discover the broader nature of global climate.  Explore the winds, oceans, and forces of nature that shape Earth, and discover what ruined our sister planet, Venus.
