Did climate change cause the extinction of the dinosaurs? How did earth recover?
Hey Gen C Changemakers. This is Generation Carbon. The podcast where kids like you, help grownups like us, save the planet.
We know you have tough questions about climate change, and we believe you deserve the answers!
In this episode of Generation Carbon, we are learning about dinosaurs! Why did the dinosaurs go extinct? Did the asteroid affect the climate? How did the planet recover?
Our Science Spark comes from Lake, our Gen C Changemaker from River Farm Forest School. We hear what’s going on firsthand from Edie, Hennie Heron and Sloane the Sloth! Learn more from Francois Therrien from Royal Tyrrell Museum 1 and Gen C Super Scientific Story Reporter Onon from Hong Kong. Cole, from Toronto, shares what Jurassic Park got wrong.
