In the spring of 2005, National Geographic photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic to capture images which help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rates. Travelling with a young team of adventurers by helicopter, canoe and dog sled across three continents, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story in human history. As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramp up around the world, Chasing Ice depicts a heroic photojournalist on a mission to gather evidence and deliver hope to our carbon- powered planet.
