A multi-year record of the world’s glaciers melting due to climate change is documented in stunning time-lapse photography. This Oscar nominated, 2014 Emmy award-winning film for Outstanding Nature Programming is breathtaking.


A brief introduction precedes the movie and a discussion after the movie will be led by Fred Stoss, Librarian: Biological, Ecology and Geosciences, & Mathematics. With degrees in biology, zoology and information studies, and nearly a decade of research work in toxicology and environmental health, Stoss has dedicated his professional and personal life to climate change, sustainability research and environmental advocacy.
