Thin Ice Movie screening packs out ECCI
22 April 2013
On Monday 22nd April 2013 (Earth Day) the movie "Thin Ice: The inside story of climate science" was launched globally and screened at Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation.
Around 140 people gathered to watch the film which was followed by a panel debate with distinguished guests from Scotland's 2020 Climate Group, the Met Office and the University of Edinburgh School of GeoSciences.
About the movie:
In recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so geologist Simon Lamb took his camera to find out what is really going on from his climate science colleagues.
Simon followed scientists at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the USA. They talk about their work, and their hopes and fears, with a rare candour and directness. This creates an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet's changing climate.
Our goal in this project (and Simon's in the film) is to give you the chance to find out just what scientists working in this field are doing, and why their findings cause them so much concern.
