THERE GOES A CHUNK OF THE PLANET...Check out this most extraordinary event caught on video and taken from James Balog's film 'Chasing Ice'. An area of ice the size of, and three times higher than the buildings on the lower tip of Manhattan just collapsed and broke off. It somehow makes me very, very small and rather insignificant!
The two guys at the beginning are part of Balog's Extreme Ice Survey team, which maintains scores of time-lapse cameras overlooking glaciers in Greenland, Iceland, Alaska, Canada, the Rockies and the Himalayas. During daylight hours, they watch and record. Then they share what they see with scientists and National Geographic, and turn the footage into movies and TV shows.
Only video can do this!
