PROJECT: ICE director and executive producer Bill Kleinert chats about Great Lakes ice and climate change with Michigan Radio “Stateside” host Cynthia Canty. Those living in Michigan grow up with an ingrained awareness of the Great Lakes, drinking their water, sailing and swimming in them, building homes and cottages on their shorelines, and living with the weather they help produce.

The Great Lakes are an economic power-player, contributing one trillion dollars to America’s gross national product. Not to be overlooked is a $4 billion Great Lakes fishing industry.

Canty and Kleinert drill deeper into the issues raised by the new documentary film PROJECT: ICE, exploring the crucial role that ice has played and continues to play in shaping and maintaining Michigan’s most important resource.
