The Extreme Ice Survey (EIS) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extreme_Ice_Survey) is the world’s most wide-ranging glacier study ever conducted. EIS used ground-based, real-time photography to document the rapid changes occurring on the Earth’s glacial ice. Renowned nature photographer James Balog led the EIS team and compiled the study results into a series of time-lapse photography presentations showing the dramatic retreat of arctic glacier ice over a mere two-year period. Mr. Balog’s EIS study has been featured in the New Yorker and National Geographic.
James Balog is a distinguished photographer who has a passionate interest in climate change. He has put together a video, based on multi-year time-lapse photography, that dramatically displays the current, ongoing melting of ice in the arctic region. It is a stunning demonstration of the reality of global warming happening now.
