Acclaimed photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change. But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet. In Chasing Ice, Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.

Traveling with a team of young adventurers across the brutal Arctic, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity. As the debate polarizes America, and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Chasing Ice depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to deliver fragile hope to our carbon-powered planet

    Next thing you will be talking avout peak oil…. Jeez, you and the rest of the kooks are jumping the shark on this.

    There have been many times in our history, although we have not been around that far back when things like this have happened.

    Guess you believe in the Mayan theory too.

    Good luck next week.

    I see curbyourrisk is as incapable of reading scientific studies as the rest of the Republican True Believers.

    In recent years, you have to work pretty hard at avoiding the array of news coverage giving us a blow-by-blow – or disaster-by-disaster – coverage of climate change events. I suppose if your TV tuner is limited by fear of information as is your brain, accidentally bumping into reality is statistically reduced.

    One can only hope your investment decisions aren’t as restricted.

    We’re well past the “evidence” stage of NTE (near-term extinction) which will follow – and we’ll all have a front row seat.

    If you can handle it, meaning you don’t want to continue deluding yourself in regards to reality, listen to this 45 min. interview:
