Photographer James Balog and the Extreme Ice Survey

With the United Nations Climate Conference coming to an end I am wondering if any real changes will be made in regards to slowing down global warming. I can hear some people out there saying global warming, what a load of crap but since watching a talk by Photographer James Balog I’m even more convinced that we need to all pay more attention to what is happening to our world and try to make some changes to help slow down global warming.

James Balog is a nature photographer and a lot of his work has appeared in National Geographic.

His newest work is no less powerful, no less engaging and it carries an urgent message. For several years, Balog has been going up north to shoot the ice of the mammoth glaciers for his Extreme Ice Survey, a look at the shocking effects of abrupt climate change in Alaska, Greenland and Iceland. Soaring, dripping, glowing and crumbling, arctic ice under Balog’s eye is a bit of an eye opener.

If you have a spare 20 minutes its worth the watch.

    Brilliant. I’ve got a horrible feeling – and I don’t wish to be negative here – but, unless we actually DO something about global warming, this planet will eventually become Mars-like.
