End of Snow | Dr. Jane Zelikova

Dr. Jane Zelikova is a tropical ecologist living in the mountains of Wyoming and Colorado. She dreams of snow in the summer and tropical forests in the dead of winter. But her snow-capped Fourteeners are changing – no longer bringing the deep winter snowpack once promised.

This is a future from which she and the people of the West can’t run. What’s a wildly curious, adventurous girl to do? Embark on a journey into the mountains to find the tales of the past, present and future of snow. - EndOfSnow.com

Colors of Change | Jenny Nichols

I joined artist Zaria Forman on her trip to Kangerlussuaq, Greenland April 2017.  Armed with cameras we went to the front lines of climate change to document leading NASA scientists on Operation IceBridge and Angaangaq Angakkorsuaq “Uncle” an Inuit elder. Our goal – to bring facts and stories back to those who cannot access this remote landscape that is being affected by climate change and is affecting sea level rise.  Zaria’s experience will manifest as a series of breathtaking large scale drawings and mine as a short film.

Why? The planet has been shedding sea ice at an average annual rate of 13,500 square miles (35,000 square kilometers) since 1979, the equivalent of losing an area of sea ice larger than the state of Maryland every year. The data collected on Operation IceBridge provides crucial information about how this ice loss is occurring, and what these changes mean for the climate and sea level rise. - Pongo Media Productions
