Whoa.

Check out this short video, by David Breashears–mountaineer, photographer and filmmaker–which recounts his research and photography of retreating glaciers.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Study the striking loss of glacier mass between 1921 and 2007 at AsiaSociety.org.

“If current melt rates continue, these glaciers will be unable to maintain mass balance, ultimately disrupting the water supply to hundreds of millions of people downstream.”

~Asia Society

If you find melting ice as fascinating as I do, you’ll want to check out the award-winning documentary film, The Antarctica Challenge: A Global Warning.
