Ice WorldDVD - 2002
Through state-of-the-art computer graphic reconstructions, see how the earth's climate shifts over time to favor the expansion of ice. Visit current glaciated areas to observe the effect ice has on the land and hear expert glaciologists and dendrochronologists make their case for why New York and Scotland are in danger of being enveloped by the next ice age. Join a tribe of primitive Europeans as they teeter on the brink of annihilation, struggling to cope with the most extreme living conditions anyone has ever faced - ever-encroaching sheets of ice that swallowed every bit of fertile land and a climate that was on average 70 degrees colder than it is today. For these humans, survival meant more than simply keeping warm; it meant abandoning their hunter/gatherer lifestyle and finding a whole new way of living ... a way of living that endures to the present day. Discover how science indicates that evolution may be fueled less by competition and ecology, and more by climate - especially by the ice. And, follow the story of our early ancestors as they adapt to - and eventually triumph over - one of nature's most destructive forces.
