"Thin Ice: The Inside Story of Climate Science"

Filmmaker: David Sington

TICKETS - Saturday, March 7, 7 PM University of Chicago, Logan Arts Center, Chicago

The Thin Ice project began over a cup of coffee at a climate change and governance conference in Wellington in 2006. Peter Barrett (Victoria University) suggested to Simon Lamb (then at Oxford University) that he make a film about the science of climate change with his friend David Sington (DOX Productions)

The idea was to let people see an insider’s view of the astonishing range of human activity and scientific work needed to understand the world’s changing climate. Viewers would then be able to decide individually and collectively how to deal with the issue.
