In The End of Ice, we follow Dahr Jamail as he scales Denali, the highest peak in North America, dives in the warm crystal waters of the Pacific only to find ghostly coral reefs, and explores the tundra of St. Paul Island, where he meets the last subsistence seal hunters of the Bering Sea and witnesses its melting glaciers.
Jamail, a Truthout staff reporter, is also the author of Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches from an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq.
About Chautauqua Institution: Chautauqua Institution is a community on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in southwestern New York state that comes alive each summer with a unique mix of fine and performing arts, lectures, interfaith worship and programs, and recreational activities. As a community, we celebrate, encourage and study the arts and treat them as integral to all of learning, and we convene the critical conversations of the day to advance understanding through civil dialogue. CHQ Assembly is the online expression of Chautauqua Institution's mission.
