Time Lapse Photography Shows Arctic Ice Loss

The video seems a bit long at 21 minutes; but, the information is amazing.

Photographer James Balog unveiled some amazing time-lapse videos of extreme ice loss during the recent TED conference (Technology, Education, Design). The images are from the Extreme Ice Survey: "a network of time-lapse cameras recording glaciers receding at an alarming rate, some of the most vivid evidence yet of climate change."

WATCH: (The time-lapse videos start about halfway through the lecture). Ignore the commercial at he beginning.
