Can we reverse climate change? ICE ON FIRE explores the many ways we can reduce carbon emissions into the atmosphere and, crucially, how to “draw” carbon back down, bringing CO2 out of the atmosphere and thus paving the way for global temperatures to fall. Reversing climate change is urgent, given that the world recently passed 400 parts per million CO2 in the atmosphere, resulting in climate instability across the globe. We have heard the predictions, but now climate related events are a daily reality. This film explores the profound hope that we can move away from the brink. And, just as we figure out drawdown, we face an added complexity, the release of methane, a powerful greenhouse gas in the arctic, that is now entering the atmosphere.
