Appy Sluijs – Laureate 2017

Appy Sluijs – Laureate 2017

Appy Sluijs discovered that 56 million years ago, due to a chain-reaction in the oceans and the atmosphere, there was a rise in the greenhouse effect on the Earth. Palm trees grew at the poles and the Arctic Ocean became as warm as a subtropical swimming pool. Could something similar happen again? Appy Sluijs is a Natural Sciences laureate of the Ammodo KNAW Award 2017.
