Ice and Sky

Anne T. Gillis for JPIC

A must-see movie produced by Luc Jacquet (March of the Penguins) which recounts the story of Glaciologist Claude Lorius who volunteered to go on a trip to Antarctica at the age of 23 and now, at 82, is retracing the steps of his many journeys that followed. His inquisitive, scientific mind recognized that, the presence of air bubbles in the ice cubes of his drink he was enjoying after a hard day in the extreme cold, had a profound significance. Thus began his journey into the depths of the polar ice fields gathering data and making the connection between the presence of air bubbles and the impact of human activity on earth’s climate over thousands of years. It is a powerful, fascinating story.
