Arctic Tale

Oct 16 2008

This film combines G-rated animal adventure with a relatively soft environmental message. The film ends with a CODA about the dire predictions of the imminent disappearance of summer sea ice in the arctic, necessary for the survival of the film’s animals. The estimated date when sea ice would be gone is 2040. But NASA’s James Hansen revised this figure down to 2012 only a few months after the film’s release. Yipes.
