Storyline

Can we reverse climate change? Ice on Fire explores the many ways we reduce carbon inputs to the atmosphere and, more important, how to "draw" carbon down, bringing CO2 out of the atmosphere and thus paving the way for global temperatures to go down. Reversing climate change is urgent, given that the world passed 400 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere resulting in climate instability across the globe. We have heard the predictions but now climate related events are a daily reality - summer 2018 was the hottest on record, storms are stronger, droughts are longer, the arctic ice is thin or non-existent and antarctica is melting faster than predicted. Through visiting visionaries and scientists young and old, the film explores the deep hope that we can turn away from the brink. And, just as we figure out drawdown, we face an added complexity, the release of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas in the arctic, that is now entering the atmsphere.

Brilliant, Sobering, and Ultimately Hopeful

Ice on Fire gives the plain, unvarnished facts. There is no political intrigue, double-dealing, no politically correct but confusing language. This is a documentary that presents the facts in a way that anyone can understand. DiCaprio's voice is solemn but factual, Leila Connors did a brilliant job directing, and Harun Mehmedinovic surpassed his prodigious cinematography/photographic talents. Over all, after the sobering facts are presented, we of planet Earth are given viable solutions., solutions that each of us can reasonably do. Bravo! Well done!
