With presentation of this year’s Academy Awards just hours away, here’s some interesting and timely reading from Grist, the online publication that bills itself as ‘A Beacon in the Smog’.
The subject of a Grist article by Scott Thill is Chasing Ice, a documentary about the melting of glaciers in Iceland, Greenland and other areas of the Arctic. Chasing Ice has been shown several times at the Riviera Theatre in recent weeks, including a January 6th showing that was combined with a ‘community forum’ on the film and climate change. (See ‘Chasing Ice’ movie and community forum bring attention to climate change issue.)
