In recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so geologist Simon Lamb took his camera to find out what is really going on. 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 USA. They talk about their work, their hopes and fears with a rare candour and directness. This creates an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet's changing climate, and provides a compelling case for rising CO2 as the main cause.
Thin Ice is a joint initiative between Oxford University, United Kingdom, 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.
