This Clip From "Chasing Ice" Is Freaking Me Out

Posted By on Wed, Dec 12, 2012 at 4:45 PM

Because I am a terrible person, I don't generally find myself all that interested in stories about the environment. Yes, I try to do the right sort of things — reusing, recycling, I've been known to carpool and use public transportation, we bought a high MPG car, etc. — but I tune out a bit when the news switches over to news of that sort. I hope the world doesn't collapse upon itself during my lifetime or that of my children, but I also have a remarkably short attention span when it comes to that stuff. Again, I realize this is a fault of mine.

So, I wasn't terribly interested in seeing Chasing Ice, a documentary about the melting of the ice caps opening at the Loft this weekend, but geez, watching this footage of a chunk of iceberg nearly the size of Manhattan break off is pretty compelling film-making, right?
