6 PM – THIN ICE

In recent years climate science has come under increasing attack, so geologist Simon Lamb took his camera to find out what is really going on from his climate science colleagues. Simon followed scientists at work in the Arctic, Antarctic, Southern Ocean, New Zealand, Europe and the USA.  They talk about their work, and their hopes and fears, with a rare candour and directness. This creates an intimate portrait of the global community of researchers racing to understand our planet's changing climate.

7:15 PM – DINNER & PANEL DISCUSSION

8 PM – SWITCH

Dr. Scott Tinker embarks on a spectacular global adventure, exploring the world’s leading sites for all energy types, coal to solar, oil to biofuels, most of them highly restricted and never before seen on film. He gets straight answers from the political, industry and academic leaders driving energy today. In the end, he discovers a path to our future as surprising as it is practical.
