Ice Ice Baby

It seems to be a tendency that as the Arctic sea ice shrinks, the distrust in climate researchers increases exponentially. Simon Lamb is a British geologist, whose frustration over the world's reluctance to face these problems leads him to grab his camera and embark upon a journey across four continents. On his way he meets several scientists, who by showing the increasingly alarming climate changes, put forth a consensus that these problems are both man-made and up to humanity to reverse.
