conversation-based approach to public engagement on climate change may also be the missing ingredient in making sure we get to protect that which we love in the face of an uncertain future. If Enlightenment 2.0 is what is needed to develop a meaningful way of living with climate change, then we will need to expand the opportunities for people to come together as citizens in convivial conversation.

I Went To Antarctica And Here's Why You Shouldn't

Antarctica is many things: beautiful, harsh, serene, humbling, other-worldly and ferocious to name a few. It's also the golden ticket for wildlife enthusiasts and climate change scientists around the world with tourists understandably wanting some of the action. I was lucky enough to film a documentary there this year and despite it being the best place I've ever visited, I desperately don't want you to go.

Introducing HuffPost's First Documentary, On Why You Need To Care About Antarctica

Lucy Sherriff | Posted 11.09.2017 | UK
Lucy Sherriff

I went to Antarctica to film a documentary about climate change for HuffPost. Sounds simple, right? Except... I wanted to do something different. I didn't just want it to be something that disappeared into the depths of the internet, or prompted that glassy-eyed look that tends to descend on many of us when the words climate change are uttered. I didn't want to try and match the BBC or Werner Herzog and make something beautiful. We all know Antarctica is beautiful. I wanted to show the other side. The grit, the determination it takes to even get out there. The damn hard side of actually filming in such an unforgiving environment.
