One response to “Chasing Ice”

  1. Jim,
    Thanks for posting this. It is a spectacular film. After Robert Redford watched the screening of this film at his Sundance Festival he said, “You’ve never seen anything like this before.” The rate of ice dissolution in the Arctic and Antarctic is shocking. The recent ice separation from Larsen C ice field in Antarctica has created a trillion ton ice berg the size of the State of Connecticut. These shrinking ice fields in Polar Regions are a clear example of how climate change warming trends will affect other parts of the globe, including our own.
