An Evening on Climate Change at UCC
Chasing Ice Event Poster
What is it about?
To highlight recent scientific research on climate change University College Cork is hosting an Evening on Climate Change on Thursday, January 16th. The main event of the evening will be the screening of the widely acclaimed film “Chasing Ice”. In the spring of 2005, environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic – to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. However, that first trip north opened his eyes to the undeniable evidence of a warming planet. Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers (http://www.chasingice.com).
The Evening on Climate Change will kick off with a short overview of the latest science on Climate Change by Professor Ray Bates, IPPC Report Contributor and Climate Modelling expert. After the film screening UCC researchers will tell us what they are doing to understand and address climate change; attendees will have an opportunity to meet researchers who are carrying out research on climate change mitigation, adaptation and modelling research.
