For three years climate journalist Bernice Notenboom reported from the hotspots of climate change: The North Pole region and the South Pole. She went on expeditions through Siberia, Greenland and to the North Pole. She was the first Dutch woman to reach the South Pole, on skis. In 2009 she focuses on a different important area of climatological change: The Himalayas. The glaciers of this mountain range, which is home to the sources of nearly all of the big rivers in East Asia, are melting rapidly. Over 1.5 billion people depend on Himalayan melting water. The film gives an up-to-date view on a rapidly changing area: The authoritative research institute IPCC claims there will be no more snow or ice there in 40 year’s time.
