‘Ice and the Sky’ Director Launching Climate Change Educational Program

'Ice and the Sky' Director Launching

Luc Jacquet, director and writer of the Cannes closing night film “Ice and the Sky,” is launching an educational program about climate change, Variety has learned exclusively.

Jacquet, who also directed the Oscar-winning documentary “March of the Penguins,” has created a multimedia campaign through his non-profit Wild-Touch NGO. The project — called “Ice and Sky” — offers videos shot in various regions of the world, animated films, storyboard diagrams and interviews with leading researchers that will be used as teaching material.

Marion Cotillard lent her voice for the dubbing of the educational program.

Jaquet will unveil more details at a June 11 news conference at the French Institute in New York City.

The documentary “Ice and the Sky” centers on climate specialist Claude Lorius, who began researching in Antarctica in 1957 by measuring carbon dioxide bubbles in ice (some of it 800,000 years old) to prove mankind’s role in climate change. Lorius was among the first scientists to make the case for global warming.

    “Educational Program” implies the use of fact or even math based science… Otherwise, for all intensive porpoises, it’s just the same old POGROM.

    “Believers” deny that 76% of all CO2 scientists are 97% certain it “could be” a crisis of “unstoppable warming.” and not one has ever said they were not “allowed” to say more.
    Or just call it anything you want it to be. except; “sustainable” in “belief” for another 34 years of disbelief and climate failure to SAVE THE PLANET.
