Ice on Fire

(Ice on Fire)

Climate change delivers many ominous phenomena but there is an equally diverse set of resources to combat it. But humanity must not waste any of the time that is running out with every drop of melting ice.

This documentary, shot in impressive landscapes around the world, serves as a current guide to global warming. Basic information is provided by climate change experts, who use specific examples to graphically illustrate how they analyse collected data, what they learn from it, and how far their prognoses have been filled. The film puts the greatest emphasis on what can actually be done against climate change. Produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, who also narrates, it displays cautious optimism in this direction: there are formulas for many things other than just renewable energy sources. It all depends on whether we can implement them in time.
