Chasing Ice Film, a must watch!

Just read a great blog post by Erin Dorney promoting the film Chasing Ice and had to repost it along with my own promotion of the film. It was the first film we showed on campus this semester as part of our UNCG Sustainable Film and Discussion Series, our 6th year of this series, put on my our music librarian (along with my help), hosted for free at our on campus Weatherspoon Art Museum, once a month each semester. (here are the films from last AY and films from the past)

This cativating film goes back to  spring of 2005 when National Geographic photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic (and other locations  to capture images showing the Earth’s changing climate visually. This amazing experience lead him to  create  the Extreme Ice Survey, using time-lapse cameras across the Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. As Erin in her blog post pointed out, it’s a great film to show visually and scientifically the climate change issues as a lead in to a great discussion with students. Our post film discussion included students, professors and many from the local community with a geology professor facilitating the discussion, applying our thoughts  to our local are and state, what can we do to make a difference.  Here are some general resources that came out of the discussion:
