Chasing Ice

Let’s suppose that, for you, 2012 didn’t happen. There was no Hurricane Sandy; the first half of the year was not the hottest on record in U.S. history; there weren’t 15,000 record highs in March alone. Let’s suppose that, for you, climate change or global warming is still a hoax. OK, then: Watch Chasing Ice. For the past half-decade, photographer James Balog has chronicled the receding of glaciers around the world, one picture per hour. To him, glaciers are the canaries in the coal mine of the global-warming debate. We’re not talking a couple of feet every month or year—the Columbia glacier in Alaska retreated more than 2 miles in three years. A chunk of Greenland ice the size of lower Manhattan broke off and submerged in a matter of minutes with Balog’s video cameras running. Sadly, this is all real—whether everyone believes it or not
