Lone Star College-Kingwood Shows Climate Science Film

Published on: April 12, 2013

Lone Star College-KingwoodLone Star College-Kingwood will premiere the film “Thin Ice”, the inside story of climate science on April 22 at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 1:45 p.m. in CLA 114. The community is invited at no charge.

The film follows scientists at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the United States of America. It talks about their work, and their hopes and fears, with a rare candor and directness. This creates an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand the planet's changing climate. “Thin Ice” is a joint initiative between Oxford University, United Kingdom, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand (VUW), and London-based DOX Productions.

“The purpose of the film is to give people from all walks of the life the chance to see the astonishing range of human activity as well as scientific endeavor that is required to help us understand our changing climate,” said David Burre, college sustainability coordinator. “We will all be better able to decide both individually and collectively how we might deal with it.”

The global launch of the 74-minute film is presented by LSC-Kingwood’s College Sustainability Program and the Environmentally Conscious Organization, a student club.  For more information contact David Burre at David.L.Burre@lonestar.edu or call 281-312-1788.
