Defenders to present 'Chasing Ice' at MCC

CRYSTAL LAKE – On Monday, the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County will present the documentary "Chasing Ice" at McHenry County College’s Luecht Conference Center, 8900 Route 14.

An afternoon showing is planned for 1:30 p.m. There will be an evening screening at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

The screenings are free and open to the public. Donations to help cover costs are accepted.

"Chasing Ice" follows acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog as he heads to the Arctic on assignment for National Geographic. His goal is to capture images that help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate.

A skeptic about global warming when his journey began, Balog discovers undeniable evidence of climate change. Using time-lapse cameras, his videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. The film provides a way to visualize climate change in progress.

An Academy Award nominee, "Chasing Ice" has received many awards since its release in November. This will be the first screening in McHenry County.

This event is sponsored by the Environmental Defenders of McHenry County and MCC Down to Earth. It is hosted by MCC Sustainability Center and the Lou Marchi Total Recycling Institute.
