If you didn't get a chance to listen to photographer James Balog (above) on National Public Radio's "Fresh Air" program today you can check it out here. Balog talked about his Extreme Ice Survey, a long-term project for which he has placed remote cameras around the globe to document the melting of glacial ice because of climate change. The EIS will also be the subject of an episode of the fine NOVA science series on the Public Broadcasting System. That program airs on March 24.
Balog's interview was fantastic, detailing what he saw as glaciers dramatically shrank over a period of a couple of years. He also went talked about how he got the still and video images that he hopes will convince policy makers to take swift action on climate change issues.--David Schonauer
