In 1957 the twenty-five-year-old Claude Lorius decided to set off with a scientific expedition heading for the Antarctic: it was to be the first of numerous journeys leading to him becoming one of the greatest experts on ice. In contrast to what is commonly believed, ice is a material that conserves traces of its history: by interpreting these signs Lorius has been able to demonstrate how deep and potentially dangerous man’s impact on the planet is. However, Claude’s discoveries continued to be ignored, and the inhabitants of planet Earth are far from being aware of the risks of global warming.
