Judy Pederson joins panel discussion following a screening of "Chasing Ice" on Cape Cod.

MIT Sea Grant coastal ecologist Judy Pederson participated in a panel discussion following the screening of CHASING ICE at the Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater in Cape Code on Saturday, March 1, 2014. Pederson, an active leader in several organizations and committees dedicated to stewardship and protection of coastal and marine ecosystems, said that the film was highly impressive and spellbinding, and underscores the importance of addressing climate change on a global scale. She was glad to be part of the broader climate change discussion, as well as part of local efforts to raise awareness in Massachusetts, and specifically on Cape Cod, where she is a resident.
