Cardiff screening of Thin Ice
9th April 2013
The Sustainable Places Research Institute has teamed up with the Climate Change Commission for Wales to hold a free screening of Thin Ice.
As part of the film’s global launch on Earth Day a screening will be held on 22nd April 2013 at the Beverton Lecture Theatre, Cardiff University. The event will start at 17:30 and there’s only enough space for 70 people, so book your place now via Eventbrite.
The Thin Ice ‘The Inside Story of Climate Change’ film is a joint initiative between Oxford University, Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand), and London based DOX Productions. Both Universities have active programmes with world-wide networks of collaborators in climate change and related research.
The aim of the film from the outset was to give people from all walks of the life the chance to see the astonishing range of human activity as well as scientific endeavour that is required to help us understand the changing climate. It was made to inform and help people decide both individually and collectively on how we might deal with it the challenges.
The content of the film is based on visits to researchers on four continents and the ocean as they studied changes in the atmosphere, oceans, ice sheets through measurements and computer modelling. It not only looks at human time scales of hundreds of years but also ice age time scales of tens of thousands of years, and even more beyond in millions of years, when the Earth was naturally warmer.
The screening in Cardiff is one of many taking place across the world, and there’s also a trailer of the film to watch before Earth Day.
