Lars Henrik Ostenfeld travels to Greenland with three of the world’s leading glaciologists to see just how fast the ice sheet is melting, and to understand the consequences of climate change. The ice at the poles is melting, which will result in enormous rises in sea level and have major consequences for the world. But how fast will it really go?
In the Greenland ice sheet we can see our future. The film travels with pioneering glaciologists on their expeditions into the inland ice of Greenland. Top-notch science meets breathtaking visuals when one of them descends into a 200 meter deep moulin hole to find out about the bottom of the ice sheet. What they find may sound the alarm for our planet’s climate and is a clear call to act now.
