Chasing Ice Showtimes

I highly recommend seeing CHASING ICE  on the largest screen you can find in your area.  The art of ice is breathtaking as are the findings of this study of glacier ice.

I found this 7 minute ABC news clip that provides a great overview of the movie and visual proof that our glaciers are disappearing at alarming rates:


Bring the family.

Enjoy

Here is an awesome resource to review before seeing the movie.

Charts and interactive satellite time-lapse visual tools have been created using ice cores.
You can find them here.  If you want to help show others, I recommend this site:

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    because there is no sure bet escaping inland from climate change

    As I excerpted in my recent diary, Jeff Masters posits that climate change driven epic droughts  might soon cause  the collapse of our entire   civilization, more so than even the super storms like Sandy:

    Brought my wife, who believes in the science.  When done, I asked her if I could install Solar Panels now (she has opposed them because she thinks they're "ugly" and because she had a friend who had it done many years ago and had problems with them).  Her answer was still "no".

    We had yet another glitch with power yesterday.  I told her if we had solar we wouldn't have these issues.  She didn't say anything.  I think that might be a better avenue to pursue.

    She is willing to go the route of the ground thermal heat exchanger, but she doesn't want the panels.  There's no company willing to do the same kind of deal with the heat exchanger that they'll do with the solar and it still wouldn't help with the power glitches.  Well, there's work still to be done on her.

    I had heard about this film, and know Bill Moyers discussed it on his program, but I'll admit the thing that gave me the "I MUST SEE THIS NOW" moment was the diary "A Bill O'Reilly Fan Recants: Dramatic Video"! (thanks, cai!)

    I checked the showing on the movie site and found the only theaters anywhere close to me (north central Jersey) were in Manhattan.  Initially it looked like the showing runs were to end the Thursday before last weekend, which meant I wouldn't have been able to make it into the city. Fortunately though new screenings were added through the end of this week, and I persuaded two friends of mine to carpool with me into New York to see it at the Lincoln Center film society (a lovely new theater BTW which one of my friends, who sees orchestra performances at Lincoln Center regularly, didn't know existed!)

    This MUST be seen in the theater for the full effect of the cinematography and especially the sound!  When you hear a chunk of glacier the size of lower Manhattan breaking, cracking, booming and splashing in full stereo surround, it's awe inspiring.  

    Here is what I wrote on my Facebook page after getting home Tuesday night:

    Saw [CHASING ICE] tonight at the Lincoln Center film theater with [friends]. If I had Sheldon Adelson money, I'd mail a DVD of this (along with "Gasland" and "Inside Job") to every household in the country. See it in a theater if you have a chance -- the spectacle (and bass rumbling) of watching a glacier calve off a chunk bigger than southern Manhattan is worth it.

    Principal moral of the film: it is the moral duty of every human being of conscience, who has a concern for their posterity and the future of civilization, to kick Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Senator James Inhofe square in the balls at every available opportunity.

      if it is open seating.  It was shocking how quickly our SLC Library auditorium filled up.

      You will be glad you saw this amazingly beautiful film on a large screen

  •  It's showing nowhere around here (3+ / 0-)

    I did not check to see if it's showing in Atlanta, but that's about 3 hours away.  I have driven to Atlanta for a film though.  I had hoped that it might be showing in Asheville or Charlotte.  I did notice that it is showing near my daughter's school in Vermont. I hope that my daughter will get to go tomorrow night although she will need to be careful getting home.  They are predicting a wintry mix overnight

    I'm going to buy tickets for my daughter and her bf to see it in Berkeley. Sounds like they'll love it!

    I really want to see Chasing Ice.  I looked it up on the Chasing Ice website (same link at top of diary).  The website says it's "now playing through 12/6" at the Music Box Theater.  If you go to the Music Box Theater website you will see Chasing Ice "opens Sat 8 Dec".  I'm going to see it this weekend.

    Hopefully the Chasing Ice folks get their website updated with the proper info.  I wouldn't want people to miss this film.  It looks amazing, and it's important.

    Even with generous standing room, over 200 people couldn't get in.
    (including me)
    Door to auditorium open: 6:15
    House full: 6:30 (when I arrived)

    It was fun hearing what people had to say about climate change and related subjects as we dispersed.

      Q + A interesting.

      My big take away was just how mind blown the videographer became after working on the project.  Me, too.  Spent today doing some research, will post in the next day or two and try to boil down a large, tech picture into understandable terms.

      I think we are now trapped in a kinetic loop that the scientists are freaking out about.  The models of the last decade have been wrong.  Sigh!

      Sorry we missed you.  Next time, K?

  •  I have a waterfront home, its 500' above sea level (0+ / 0-)

    on the shoulder of a mountain that will become part of an archipelago of mountain top islands sometime during  the next eighty years.

    The oceans will all be dead by then of course, most of the forests too. Most of what we eat will be extinct except maybe a few species of wild mushrooms. The air we breath will be oxygen depleted and opportunistic diseases and pests like tics will be filling all the available niches.

    Forget about social security and medicare, fossil fuel energy and power tools.

    Below me in what are now the valleys the water will claim all the existing towns and infrastructure. There will be no internet, no gas stations, post office, roads, no Home Depot or Lowes, no Walmart, no recycling dumps to take trash, no water or sewer treatment. There will be no police, no courts, no fire, no healthcare, no ports or marinas or places that build boats.

    There will be no general stores except maybe MicMac cause thats on a hill, but it won't have any deliveries of food or gas or newspapers. To get there I could probably paddle over in a canoe through the noxious polluted waters full of chemicals from flooded industries.

    All of the cities on the east coast will be gone as far back as the Appalachians slipping below the waves one after another like Atlantis.

    I'm 67 and have known this pretty much all my life, about all I could think of to do was move to high ground and establish a solar self sufficient lifestyle. My kids are city people. They are in their thirties and forties, live in New York and  probably won't make it. My grandson might survive for a while if he moves out of the city but it won't be an easy life.
