Movie: Chasing Ice
Photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change. Then in the spring of 2005 he went to the Arctic on assignment for National Geographic, to deploy time-lapse cameras designed to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. It was not an easy assignment - cameras and people do not do well with long exposure to such extreme conditions; but he persevered, and the story and images were brought together in the movie "Chasing Ice". Our host for the evening will be Adrian Noble.
The movie is 75 minutes long and will be followed by a short discussion.
