ANTARCTICA: ICE AND SKY REVIEWED
“Antarctica: Ice and Sky” focuses on Claude Lorius. Lorius started visiting Antarctica in the mid 1950s, after some time…he discovered a growing environmental concern. That’s right, kids. Lorius was the first scientist to discover Global Warming (I’m never calling it climate change on this site). Well, Lorius works with the guy that directed March of the Penguins to create a solid look at how global warming is changing the planet. Naysayers will enjoy the animal footage, but nothing is presented as a smoking gun conclusion. If you want a way to explain global warming to younger kids, I can see this documentary working for that purpose.

The Plot Thus Far
Antarctica: Ice and Sky is filled with breathtaking landscape photography and a fascinating array of archival footage from his 22 polar expeditions, wherein Lorius faced unforgiving conditions and brutal personal challenges in a land previously untouched by scientific experiments. Audiences hear the inspiring story of Lorius’ groundbreaking discoveries over the decades, that would ultimately sound the alarm for the global warming crisis and expose humankind’s devastating impact on the Earth’s climate.
