Chasing Ice
Please click here to let us know you're coming (via email or Facebook)
Followed by a facilitated conversation session. Find out about campaigns to transform UK energy policy so we can create a low-carbon sustainable future. An Energy Bill is currently going through parliament that will determine how our electricity is produced over the next 30 years. Decisions taken now to invest in new dirty fossil fuel technologies such as shale gas and arctic drilling will lock us into long-term fossil fuel investment and dependency. There is a chance that we can alter current policy to invest more extensively in green renewable technology and demand reduction measures so that there is no need for fossil fuels. It is totally possible to decarbonise our electricity production by 2030.

Film Synopsis

In the spring of 2005, acclaimed 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. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.

Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.

As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Balog finds himself at the end of his tether. Battling untested technology in subzero conditions, he comes face to face with his own mortality. It takes years for Balog to see the fruits of his labor. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Chasing Ice depicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet.
