Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot make short film on the climate crisis

Environmental activists Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot have helped produce a short film highlighting the need to protect, restore and use nature to tackle the climate crisis. Living ecosystems like forests, mangroves, swamps and seabeds can pull enormous quantities of carbon from the air and store them safely, but natural climate solutions currently receive only 2% of the funding spent on cutting emissions. The film’s director, Tom Mustill of Gripping Films, said: 'We tried to make the film have the tiniest environmental impact possible. We took trains to Sweden to interview Greta, charged our hybrid car at George’s house, used green energy to power the edit and recycled archive footage rather than shooting new.'

After the Ice - Part 1: Our Food

As sea ice vanishes, Indigenous hunters in Alaska seek new prey. As a child growing up along the Bering Sea in Alaska, Clyde Oxereok hunted walrus with village elders, relying on solid sea ice for nine months of the year. But as Arctic temperatures have risen, the ice is now dangerously thin, and only appears for three months. That’s transforming the foods that Indigenous communities hunt, forcing them to find new prey as the temperature steadily rises.
