Green Film Series: Antarctic Edge: 70° South

The Fastest Warming Place in the World is Cool

The climate crisis has been in the news this week because Antarctica’s ice is melting much faster than anyone expected.

That means that this Thursday’s free Green Film Series screening, “Antarctic Edge: 70° South” – TOMORROW, 6/21 at 6:00 p.m. (please note this new earlier hour) at the Montclair Public Library, 50 South Fullerton Avenue, 07042 – is perfectly timed.

“Antarctic Edge” is a science-in-action feature film, funded in part by the National Science Foundation. The documentary follows a team of renowned climate scientists into the fastest winter-warming spot in the world, combining innovative science, dramatic imagery and two decades of scientific collaboration into a compelling character-driven narrative.

With unprecedented access to critically important climate research, we will go into the heart of the planet’s fastest changing environment: the West Antarctic Peninsula. For the first time in history, the Long-Term Ecological Research project at Palmer Station is stunningly documented on film.

This will be a fascinating film!

Bring a friend, a neighbor, or your family scientist to this free screening, and to our open discussion afterwards.
