Reposted from Hot Topic. lprent: This post has been reposted without permission. However I suspect that we won’t have issues with doing so…

Thin Ice, the superb documentary about climate science and scientists filmed and produced by New Zealand and British climate scientists, has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to finance a new edit of the film so that it can be shown on public TV in the US. From the Kickstarter page:

Thin Ice, the superb documentary about climate science and scientists filmed and produced by New Zealand and British climate scientists, has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to finance a new edit of the film so that it can be shown on public TV in the US. From the Kickstarter page:

Why do we need help? The global screening on Earth Day, 2013, reached over 200 locations worldwide, and many others have seen it since. Now we have a chance to re-edit the film for screening on American Public Television – if we can raise the NZ$27,500 (US$22,000) in 30 days needed for the re-edit and promotion.

We want the film to be seen by as many people as possible on TV in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America. We already have subtitles in 8 languages, so with the shortened film Thin Ice will be that much more accessible to schools and communities worldwide.

With 14 days to go, the project still needs to raise NZ$20,000, so if you can spare a few dollars go to Kickstarter, make a few climate scientists happy, and help to get this excellent film put in front of a wider audience.

    Just a short video showing Prof. Tim Naish (Vic) on the results of the ANDRILL project.

    When you see real science in action and understand the extraordinary scope of the information correlating the impacts of fossil carbon – then the claim that it’s all some kind of international scam or hoax is just beyond ludicrous.

      Thank you. I was a bit short of time for the email to and fro (esp as I hadn’t taken anything capable of reading my email to work today), but I figured that you’d see the link and grant it retrospectively for this post.

    I’ve passed it around ….. hope you get sufficient funds to get it to the USA.

    Good luck with the fundraising. As a scientist (not climate), I’m sick of imbeciles claiming that we are conspiring against the truth. It will be good to let more people know how climate science works.

    The Kickstart fundraiser to help get a NZ combined scientist driven film about ice etc and the environment has now 60% of funds with 10 days to go. Help the worthy, that is something we can do $30? Even less. Click above, its not an onerous process.

    We wonder what we can do, sometimes it seems we can do little, but if we hold hands and grasp firmly we can lift the world.
