Description

Thin Ice: The Inside Story of Climate Science

This year celebrate Earth Day with hundreds of people around the world by building your understanding of climate science. Join in the global screening of Thin Ice: The Inside Story of Climate Science and stay to discuss our shared experience of global climate change.

In recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so geologist Simon Lamb took his camera to find out what is really going on. For over three years he followed scientists from a wide range of disciplines at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the USA. They talk about their work, their hopes and fears with a rare candour and directness. This creates an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet's changing climate, and provides a compelling case for rising CO2 as the main cause.

Thin Ice - the inside story of climate science - is a unique project: a film about climate science made by a scientist.

Film Screening begins at 7 p.m. in the Science & Engineering Building Auditorium
