The inside story of climate science

Presented by the San Francisco Green Film Festival and the Wallace Stegner Environmental Center

Travel through the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the USA with geologist Simon Lamb to get this insider's view of the astonishing range of people working to understand the world's changing climate.

As climate science has come under increasing attack, the scientists in Thin Ice talk about their work, their hopes and fears with a rare candor 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.

This is a unique project: a film about climate science filmed by a scientist and put together by award-winning documentary filmmaker David Sington.
