Extreme Ice Survey

Our lives continue to appear perfectly normal, the world perfectly stable, our futures perfectly secured. Meanwhile we undermine our climate with our every action. The Extreme Ice Survey has been collecting time-lapse photographic evidence for anyone still skeptical about climate change, or people just interested in watching miles and miles of ice disappear. James Balog gave a TED talk explaining his project in July 2009.

I find that Once in a Lifetime by The Talking Heads sets about the right tone for watching the world we know melt away.

Letting the days go by
Let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by
water flowing underground
Into the blue again
after the moneys gone
Once in a lifetime
water flowing underground.

same as it ever was... ((GL-05 Ilulissat Glacier))

same as it ever was... ((GL-06 Umiamako Glacier))

same as it ever was... ((Store Calving Live Video))

same as it ever was... ((AK-02 Columbia Glacier“ Waterline”))

And you may ask yourself
Where does that highway go?
