Green Planet Films and the Humanist Hall presents a film screening of THIN ICE: The Inside Story of Climate Science. Q&A with special guest Peter Barrett, a geologist from New Zealand, and Exec Producer of the film.

6:30-7:30 optional Potluck refreshments and social hour. Film at 7:30.

ABOUT: In recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so concerned geologist Simon Lamb grabbed his camera and set out to explore the inside story of climate research. For over three years he followed scientists from a wide range of disciplines at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the USA. See how they collect and analyse climate data.

40 scientists participated, covering a wide range of disciplines. They talk about their work, their hopes and fears with a rare candor and directness, resulting in an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet's changing climate and provide a compelling case for rising CO2 as the main cause.

Peter was studying geology at Auckland University when a chance trip to Antarctica led him to a life-long interest in its climate history. Since 1975 he has led a series of offshore drilling projects for a history of Antarctic climate and ice sheet behaviour since its inception around 34 million years ago. In recent years he has become interested in the perspective that climate change on geological time scales provides for future human-induced climate change. After gaining a PhD from Ohio State University in 1968, he returned to New Zealand to become Founding Director, Antarctic Research Centre, Victoria University of Wellington (1972-2007). From 1998-2004 he was New Zealand's representative on the Antarctic Treaty System's Committee on Environmental Protection. He was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Geological Society of London in 2011.
