Future of Ice: "Chasing Ice" film screening
In 2005, photojournalist James Balog headed to the Arctic on an assignment from National Geographic. He was to tell the story of the Earth's changing climate through images of shrinking ice caps and melting glaciers.
What he found inspired the film Chasing Ice. Balog's documentary examines the toll climate change is taking on the Arctic and Antarctic; recounts the launch of Extreme Ice Survey, a ground-based photographic study of glaciers; and captures a mix of troubling evidence and inspiring hope in some of the world's most extreme conditions.
Cost: Free, but advance registration is required.

Balog will speak the following evening about his experiences in these harsh conditions as part of the Future of Ice series.Learn more and register for Balog's free lecture.
