    How are the oceans changing and what role do they play in climate change? John Marshall is the Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Oceanography in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) at MIT. He conducts research in climate science and the general circulation of the atmosphere and oceans, which he studies through the development of mathematical and numerical models of key physical and bio-geochemical processes. John became interested in meteorology and oceanography as a physics undergraduate student at Imperial College, London. Since moving to MIT over 20 years ago, he has studied physical oceanography and, increasingly, the role of the ocean in climate. According to John, “I was attracted to the field of oceanography because of its wonderful mix of empiricism, observation, theory and modeling. Furthermore, its ‘bottom-up’ nature allows scientists themselves to identify the problems to be solved, then organize and implement programs to do so. It still remains a field in which scientists working in small groups can make a huge impact.” He is motivated by the fact that understanding the climate, and the role of the ocean therein, represents one of the greatest and important intellectual challenges facing mankind today. Professor Marshall is the Director of MIT’s Climate Modeling Initiative and also the coordinator of Oceans @ MIT, a new umbrella organization dedicated to all things related to the ocean across the Institute.

          I play my piano with dry ice as a protest against global warming from the accumulation of carbon dioxide. The inspiration for this comes from a childhood memory of making the American Eagle scream by pressing a silver dollar against a chunk of dry ice. That led me to originally do this with a piano as a live real-time video performance in 1979. I'm surprised that the world is still here in 2014, so I felt it was time to play this tune again.

            My point of view on carbon dioxide and air pollution as a whole. Carbon dioxide, a green house gas, is the main pollutant warming the Earth. Though living things emit carbon dioxide when they breath, it is widely considered a pollutant when associated with cars, planes, power plants, and other human activity involving the burning of fossil fuels such as gasoline and other natural gases.

                      For more information, please visit: http://beautifulchemistry.net/ Many chemical reactions generate gases. In solution, gases escape as bubbles. Here we show 4 bubbling reactions. The last one is the electrolysis of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) aqueous solution. It is obvious that the reaction generated more hydrogen (H2) at the cathode than oxygen (O2) at the anode. In fact, the ideal volume ratio is H2 : O2 = 2 : 1.
