In the spring of 2005, environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of climate change. Balog had been a skeptic, but that first trip north opened his eyes and led him to conceive the boldest expedition of his life: the Extreme Ice Survey. In this critically acclaimed, Emmy-winning documentary, Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate - providing startling, undeniable evidence of our changing planet.
