CAFx: Ice on Fire – Film + Debate
October 12th 2019 at 17:00
Format: Films & debates
Ice on Fire: Leila Conners, 2018, 98 mins, English, no subtitles.
Climate change is already happening. The Summer of 2018 was the hottest on record, storms are stronger, droughts are longer, the arctic ice is thin or non-existent, and Antarctica is melting faster than predicted. But can we reverse climate change?
Ice on Fire explores the many ways we can reduce carbon inputs into the atmosphere and, more importantly, how to “draw” carbon down, bringing CO2 out of the atmosphere and thus paving the way for global temperatures to decrease. Through visionaries and scientists the film explores the deep hope that we can turn away from the brink, as we have at hand the ability, capacity, and the solutions that can reverse global warming. Not mitigate, not reduce, not stabilize, but reverse. But there is an added complexity: the release of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas, in the arctic; which is now entering the atmosphere.
After the film there will be a 30 mins talk with Communications Director Jakob Nielsen from the KR Foundation, that exclusively supports projects that address the root causes of climate change and environmental degradation.
The event will be in English.
This project is supported by Realdania
