Earth Sciences Hosts Screening of ‘Thin Ice’ Climate Change Documentary
Syracuse University’s Department of Earth Sciences will host a screening of “Thin Ice—The Inside Story of Climate Change” today, April 22, at 6:30 p.m. in Eggers Auditorium, Room 010 of Eggers Hall. The screening is free and open to the public.
The just-released movie will be screened at close to 200 locations throughout the world today, which is Earth Day.
The 73-minute documentary is the first film about the science of climate change made by scientists themselves. It tells the story of the urgent work to understand the Earth’s changing climate from the standpoint of the individuals who are on the front lines of climate change research in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the United States.
More than six years in the making, “Thin Ice” is a compelling look at the changes taking place in the Earth’s atmosphere, oceans and ice sheets. It documents the hopes, fears and sense of urgency driving the scientists studying these changes.
