Summary
Photographer James Balog found it hard to accept the notion of climate change until he was hired to shoot a glacier in Iceland. Shocked by the rapid deterioration of the ice giant - what had been predicted to take hundreds of years was happening over a matter of months due to global warming - Balog decided to document the advanced ice loss using time-lapse cameras. The result was the Extreme Ice Survey. In this TEDTalk, Balog shares new image sequences from the Survey, some of the most vivid evidence of climate change yet.
