Ice on Fire

Ice on Fire

Leila Conners

Overview

Nowhere on Earth has been more changed by climate disruption than the arctic, where the release of ancient methane from permafrost may lead to an irreversible level of global warming.

The melting of the Arctic has been called Earth's ticking time bomb and the final tipping point of disastrous climate change. But is it too late to fix?

Leila Conners is a documentary filmmaker and founder of the production company Tree Media. In collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio, Conners made Ice on Fire as a wakeup call to the dire situation of Earth's future. As our planet faces a possible extinction level event, this documentary argues that the only solution may be reversing global warming by extracting excess carbon from the atmosphere.

"We were curious and we dug up the carbon that had been sequestered by the Earth. And we burned it, not knowing it was like burning furniture in a house with its windows closed."

Janine Benyus, founder of Biomimicry Institute
