Anchorage filmmaker Jan-Pieter Welt has continued work on “2nd Order Science,” a documentary begun in 1992 that tracks changing perceptions among scientists about climate change.
Welt talked to academics about global climate change and recorded their thoughts at a time when the juggernaut of sea ice retreat and rapid warming had barely begun.
“Now, 15 years later, we’re going back to re-interview the same people to see what they’ve learned since,” Welt writes in an email message.
Welt has posted a 31-minute preview of the film online.
The original inspiration? “It was obvious to us in the late eighties that the shit was going to hit the climate change fan in the not-too-distant future,” he writes.
