On the heels of an extremely mild winter in which much of the US saw very little snow and record-setting high temperatures, comes a documentary on climate change's effects in the arctic from award-winning National Geographic photographer James Balog. The film, Chasing Ice, documents the work of the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS), an impressive multi-year project to document changes to the arctic environment. With 27 cameras pointed at 18 glaciers around the world, the project captures 8,000 frames of time-lapse footage per year. Put together in the documentary, the changes that would other seem well, glacially slow, come across as dramatic. Balog, hopes that seeing the evidence of climate change may make a difference where human stubbornness otherwise persists.
