Whether we like it or not, our global weather systems are changing. The science is in, and man is causing a lot of that change. For those of you who are not inclined to read the scientific work and/or interpret the data, check out a film called Chasing Ice by photographer James Balog.
N.B. All images in this post are the work of James Balog
The film sees James and his crew travel across Iceland, Greenland and Northern America to capture stunning time lapse images of glaciers (read glacial retreat).
The footage is stunning and the results alarming. For those wondering whether still images will be with us in the future, contemplate how powerful some of James' images are.
For those of you further interested in climate science, be sure to read the Bad Astronomer by Phil Plait (mainly Astronomy, but a healthy dose of reality, too) and for the nerdier amongst us, check out Nasa's Climate Science pages.
