Join us for a free screening of the film CHASING ICE, an award-winning documentary depicting the story of acclaimed National Geographic photographer James Balog and his mission to gather undeniable evidence of climate change. Using time-lapse cameras, Balog's videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.

After the film, geologist Thomas Sharp and geochemist Wally Broecker will host a discussion with the audience. Sharp is a mineralogist interested in understanding processes that occur on and within the Earth's surface. Broecker, arguably one of the world's greatest living scientists, has led the war on human-caused climate change.
