Scientists as Heroes: Researchers Advocating for the Earth

 
INDIANAPOLIS – Scientists are working across the planet to understand what human activities are doing to the natural world – and what can be done to fix the problem. Meet some of these heroes during the Fall 2014 Indianapolis Interfaith Eco-Film Series, beginning with Thin Ice on Friday, Sept. 12.
 
All films will be shown at Epworth United Methodist Church, 6450 Allisonville Road, at 7:30 p.m. on the second Friday of each month. Co-sponsors of the film series are Cross and Crown Lutheran Church, Epworth United Methodist Church, First Friends Meeting and the Sierra Club's Hoosier Chapter.
 

Sept. 12: Thin Ice

In recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so concerned geologist Simon Lamb grabbed his camera and set out to explore the inside story of climate research. For over three years he followed scientists from a wide range of disciplines at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the United States.

They talk about their work, their hopes and fears with a rare candor and directness, resulting in an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet’s changing climate and provide a compelling case for rising CO2 as the main cause.

The film puts a human face on the huge international effort and astonishing range of human activity and scientific endeavor required to understand Earth’s climate system. (74 minutes. thiniceclimate.org/)
