Earth Hour film screening of Thin Ice - the inside story of climate science
Join us for a special screening of Thin Ice - the inside story of climate science followed by a discussion for Earth Day.
The film will start at 5.15 pm (doors open at 5 pm) so please ensure you are seated by this time so we can promptly start the film. The film runs for 70 mins and will be followed by a 20 - 30 minute discussion on the issues covered in the film.
This event is open to everyone and is free to attend.
This film is about climate science, but this one is about the scientists as well.
Some are well known to you, others not so, but all talk with passion , concern and some humour about their work. The film is mainly the work of geologist and photographer Simon Lamb and science documentary producer David Sington, DOX Productions, who worked together on Earth Story (BBC Horizon, 1998). The story line is Simon’s journey as a geologist. He has heard the terrible things the press have been reporting about his climate science colleagues, so he decides to take his camera and find out what’s really happening. But the stars are the scientists.
Key messages are that scientists can be trusted and that ultimately we have to quit using fossil fuels. We do not try and say how this should be done. We do hope that the film will lead audiences into some deeper thinking on the issue and perhaps even a shift toward solutions.
