CHASING ICE is an important film in many ways. But the simplest reason is this: millions do not dare to watch it, because it would shatter their incantation-based membership in the cult of science-hating and climate denialism.   Just to see the very clear rate at which all Canadian/Alaskan, Greenland glaciers are retreating… until this film, the Hannity crowd were still trying the line “half of glaciers are advancing!”  That outright lie was slammed so hard by films like CHASING ICE that the cult backpedaled.  (But we will not forget that many of you proclaimed that blithering lie, and shouted it smugly.)

Then it became “the North is heating while the South is cooling!”  Seriously! They tried to push the notion that increased snowfall at the S.Pole meant it was cooling down there, instead of increased precipitation coming from surrounding warming seas.  They will repeat anything Roger Ailes tells them to, in order to protect Koch-Saudi interests.

Now?  The line is: "Okay there’s major warming going on worldwide! But it’s all natural! Human generated CO2 plays no role!”  

Except that the de-basing of the ocean… making it less healthy-alkaline and more acidic... is directly caused by our pollution.  That is an absolute fact, as is the bad effects of that trend.  To THAT all they have is is a tactic -- to swivel, point elsewhere and shout “squirrel!”

Watch this film.  FORCE crazy uncles to watch it.  They will backpedal and say denialism isn’t about glaciers, anymore.  Do not let them get away with that!  “You destroyed your credibility with that earlier crap. And then the next crappy rationalization that lasted for a year. Then the next.  Your new crap is just as incredible, including the insane basis for it all, that Sean Hannity is smarter than the tens of thousands of real scientists who know this stuff.

Tell your crazy uncle: “It is time to start negotiating what to do, just in case the smart folks who understand all this actually turn out (horrors!) to be smart folks, after all.”

Oh… vote. If you do not, or preen some hifalutin purist reason to say “they’re all the same,” then you are part of the cabal that is assassinating our future. We'll remember you just as clearly as we remember Hannity's sock puppets. You will live without credbility.
It’s hard to truly appreciate the effects of climate change. We hear of a two degree jump over the course of decades, of dwindling animal populations, and of sea levels rising inches. These effects don’t sound all that stunning.

Carl Zeiss is primarily known for optics, and now, a small team within the company is leveraging that reputation into a $99 VR viewer they call the VR ONE.
