Climate change and our shifting environment in Chasing Ice | Truth to Tell
Huge calving ice glaciers, white mountains falling in slow-mo into fizzing, bubbling water make great imagery. But, its hard to see what kind of case they make for climate change.
Many of us climate change believers have surely had enough run-ins with Neanderthal deniers to be looking for a stronger case to hang our next foray on. As such, there are likely to be two reactions to this film: one, for those who agree – know – that climate change exists, for whom the the images are shocking and depressing; two, those who deny climate change, for whom the images will be a platform for more mindless, cyclical debate.
To my unscientific brain, the crashing ice calves, spectacular and awesome though they may be, are not only no proof of climate change, they are no indication of human intervention in climate change even if we win the argument on climate change’s reality.
