For many years now there has been one controversy that affects every single person on this planet whether you know it or not. That issue is, of course, global warming and the direct and long-term effects that this has on our planets. It is without question that our planet’s atmosphere and climate has been changing from year to year, we have studies to prove it. Most people do not get to witness some of these effects first hand. Not the way that photographer James Balog experienced.
James and his crew traveled and studied the Article Circle in Greenland for over three years. His crew set up cameras in various locations to capture the nature that was around them. The cameras caught everything that you could have imagined and things that were impossible even to ponder.
It was during this National Geographic sanctioned expedition that the crew witnesses something that they would never forget for the rest of their lives. In all of Balog’s year of filming and photographs, he never witnessed something with such mass, and so much force just seem to shatter in from of them. A glacier the size of Manhattan was eroding in front of their eyes. Witnessing something like this first hand is strong enough to change anyone’s stance on the issue of global warming.
Glacier the size of Manhattan crumbling in Arctic
This was not the first time an ice mass this large would break, and it is not going to be the last time.
Global warming is wreaking so much havoc on this planet that researchers have discovered a major crack within the Antarctic Ice Shelf Larsen C, the fourth largest ice shelf in Antartica. The crack is so significant that it is expected to break off and form an iceberg that is larger than some countries in Europe.
Here’s the entire video of the crumbling glacier:
