Simon LambSimon Lamb is a Wellington scientist whose award-winning documentary about climate change is to be screened on American public television. The Associate Professor of Geophysics at Victoria University, was so worried about attacks on climate science colleagues around the world that he set out to make a film about the work that they do.

Thin Ice is a 72-minute documentary which has screened around the world at film festivals since it was released last year, and won awards at several. Now Dr Lamb and his colleagues who made the film, have the chance to get it on American public television, but they have to raise more than $27,000 to fund the cost of editing it.
