Agreement with Peru’s Environmental Ministry

We’ve recently reached an agreement with Peru’s Environmental Ministry (Ministerio del Ambiente, or MINAM) where they will be holding screenings of Glacial Balance around the country to educate the public of the causes of the changing climate and research being carried out to further study past climates. While the Peruvian public is unfortunately well aware of the effects of climate change, MINAM was seeking a method of educating the public that would show the interconnectedness of communities, cities, and neighboring countries. We’re happy to be partnering with them to allow the film to be used as a tool to enlighten and motivate.

COP20 screening

I was invited to screen the film as part of the activities surrounding the COP20 conference in Lima. We had a great turnout and were pleased to have been accompanied by local glaciologist Benjamin Morales Arnao.

 
 

A big thank you to CONDESAN and MINAM for the invitation, and to IADB for their assistance!

Reviews

  • As much an anthropological study and geography lesson as a climate-change documentary, this is highly recommended. F. Gardner
    Video Librarian
  • See firsthand how changes in the annual patterns of glacier melt forces people to alter what they plant and the consequent diet they eat… as well as how these changes impact basic energy consumption in societies. David Brock
    National Science Teachers Association
  • Mountain glacier demise preludes the fate of the great ice sheets on Greenland and Antarctica, if humanity does not come to its senses soon. Steinman’s film wakes us up to the danger by hearing directly from the ones suffering the consequences of society’s inaction. James Hansen
