'Chasing Ice' Climate Change Documentary to Be Screened on Campus

'Chasing Ice' Climate Change Documentary
to Be Screened on Campus

DuBOIS – A documentary film that explores the notion of climate change by detailing the loss of arctic ice masses is scheduled for screening at Penn State DuBois. Chasing Ice is the culmination of years of work by photographer James Balog, who used cameras to capture the shrinking glaciers of the arctic. The public is welcome to attend the screening, free of charge, at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 20, in the Hiller Auditorium.

Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering evidence of the changing planet. It follows the photographer on a bold expedition that he dubbed The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.

Penn State DuBois glaciologist Byron Parizek will be present for a question and answer session immediately after the showing.

This event is sponsored by the Penn State DuBois Earth Science Club, in cooperation with the Sierra Club Moshannon Group, and Elk County C.A.R.E.S.

For more info on the changes in the Arctic and what it means to natives and the rest of the world, see "The Eskimo and the Oilman" by Bob Reiss. Excellent read. The decline is the ice shield is one of the real indicators of warming and global change, our nasty winter not withstanding. Native people(s) are already adjusting and planning for the future.

Mother Nature is like most Women, She does whatever She wants.

I live where there used to be ice over a mile thick. It melted long before coal fired electrical generation or man existed.
