Screening of "Chasing Ice" followed by Panel Discussion with Climate Scientists

Synopsis (from the film website)
Chasing Ice is the story of environmental photographer James Balog's mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of his first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.

    Last night was my first time at this Meetup and I enjoyed meeting and visiting with a couple long-time members. The movie was visually stunning and but disturbing as well, which no doubt was the intent. I look forward to meeting even more members of the MU at this Saturday's event. Oh and by the way, the Tech Trolley worked great!

    Glad you guys made it tonight! Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet anyone. Next time maybe I won't be in & out of the event in such a frenzy- busy day.

    I'm a Tech student, so if you need help finding your way email me at [masked] and I will try to help you out with directions, etc.

    I ride Marta to work downtown, and tonight I plan to ride up to the Midtown station and walk the 20 minutes to Tech. If anyone will be going back toward the Midtown station after the movie, maybe I could hitch a ride.

      Laura - You should be able to catch the Tech Trolley to get you from Midtown Station to the Tech Campus. (See link below.) It may not run late enough for a return, though. I wish I could help out myself with a ride back to MARTA, but I'll be attending the other Georgia Tech event tonight and will likely be on my bicycle. - Marc

    I recommend parking in Visitor Area 5, or if you don't do well with stairs, Area 4. http://pts.gatech.edu/park/Documents/parking%20map%201213.jpg
    ES+T isn't labelled on this map, but it is between the Petit building and Cherry Street.

    Room L1255 is one floor down from the main entrance to the building.

    Does anyone know when the doors will open?

    October 20, 2013

    • Marc M.

      Laura - It's hard for me to say when the doors open for the screening. It's an classroom or auditorium in the Environmental Science & Technology building at Tech. My guess is that people will be able to enter at least a half hour in advance, maybe earlier. I hope you enjoy the event. - Marc

      It looks like the last class in that room ends at 4p tomorrow. The ES+T atrium is also a comfortable place to read a book if you arrive early.
