A Photographer positioned cameras around the Arctic and left them filming—capturing the unimaginable

It can easily be said that this is the longest—and probably largest—evidence of our current climate catastrophe ever caught on camera. Regrettably, it wasn’t the first nor last.

(Scroll down for the video!)

Photographer James Balog and his team traveled to Greenland to examine a glacier when their cameras captured something incredible. James and his colleagues were gathering images from cameras that had been deployed around the Arctic circle over a period of three years. Just imagine everything the cameras recorded.


Balog and his team were filming material fro a documentary and were looking for good shots to feature in the film, but none of them was prepared to see what would soon unfold in front of them.

James Blog who is an expert in nature photography never really thought much of climate change and did not believe what scientists were saying for years in regards to global warming.

“I didn’t think that humans were capable of changing the basic physics and chemistry of this entire, huge planet. It didn’t seem probable, it didn’t seem possible,” Balog says.


Balog and his crew stood by and watched as a piece of ice the size of lower Manhattan.

During a National Geographic commissioned exposure in the Arctic, he saw what was happening to earth in frist hand.

In fact, after early ten years, Balogs’ film “Chasing Ice” premiered, and he determined to document the melting of glaciers with a swarm of cameras. And it was during this time that Balog and his team recorded one of the scariest yet spectaculat scences ever recorded.

Balog and his team saw a CHUNK of ice mass, the size of Lower Manhattan break up in front of them. In fact, the moment was so spectacular that the event was recorded in the Guinness Book of Records and clearly shows how serious the situation is for Earth’s climate.

As far as most of us are concerned, what Balog and his team recorded on camera was an unprecedented geological disaster. Regrettably, it wasn’t the first, nor last time.

In fact recently, researchers uncovered a massive crack in the Antarctic Ice shelf Larsen C, and experts believe it will soon break off and could become an iceberg that is twice the size of the smallest European country. Antarctic ice Larsen C is the fourth largest ice shelf in Antarctica. Nature has reported that since early this year, its crack has moved at least 10 kilometers more. As of the moment, the crack is already 175 kilometers long.

Global warming is the main reason that the crack in Larsen C is getting longer. It is also getting longer faster than the first Larsens, A and B. The Larsen C crack has upped to a factor of eight, says Eric Rignot, a glaciologist at the University of California, Irvine.

  1. Sorry, I don’t buy into the idea that mankind can affect this planet’s climate to any significant degree. Mankind has not been present on Earth for very long compared to its entire history. More than 30k scientists agree that Earth is simply going through one of its many phases. I read a scientific article more than 25 years ago that Earth is emerging from a temperate phase into one with more chaotic weather, and that is exactly what we’re witnessing. You’ll notice that it was when Al Gore was looking at possible bankruptcy that he came up with the financially brilliant idea of “Global Cooling”. Since then he has become wealthier than ever and the name of the threat to Earth has changed several times, depending on the weather. None of his dire predictions have come to pass. I truly believe that this lovely little planet will exist long after mankind is not even a fading memory.

    1. Assuming we dont kill off all advanced life in a nuclear winter sure our impact on the planet won’t be bad enough to destroy it, just tip the balance enough that our species is miserable or dies out. Earth Is big but I recycle as much as possible because my impact (everyone’s impact) adds up to make our home unpleasant if not outright toxic. That’s true whether it’s in your own back yard or your neighbor or neighbors neighbor. It adds up.

      1. Sure, I’m definitely all for being a caretaker of our planet. I recycle and pick up trash when I see it. Keeping our water and environment as clean as possible has always been a primary consideration for me and it should be for everyone. BUT, being a conservationist does not mean I intend to fall for the BS spewed by elites who are soaking people for every penny they can while continuing to have carbon footprints as big as large cities. Their hypocrisy of “do as I say and not as I do” was the first thing that woke me up to their scam.

  2. You don’t need cars and other pollutants to be added to this, Humans do the most damage even without technology. Clearing of the land for malls and garbage dumps while reproducing uncontrollably chewing up more resources of the land.

        1. ??? Excuse me, I was replying to “Clearing of the land for malls and garbage dumps while reproducing uncontrollably chewing up more resources of the land…”

          Now if you can’t see that Dubai and other Arab skyscraper building and giant malls and huge ice skating rinks was what I was referring to as well as the fact that they are doing this in the middle of the desert, then I don’t know what to tell you…
          IT’S CALLED SARCASM, DUMMY…

  3. Gee, we know that the ICE AGE was only 12,000 years ago and they said “It warmed up ABRUPTLY. To get to this point now… we are at the peak of a natural cycle obviously. NO one seems to be paying a lot of attention to the Milankovitch cycles. Wake up people. Don’t let Big Brother tax you to death or take away your modern comforts for a lie. Did you KNOW what they found where the alaskan glaciers have receded? Evidence of FOREST and Human campments. Then the ice grew… now it’s going back to where it once was.. it’s a cycle people a cycle.

  4. Outright Bullshit. A Horrendus Lie Designed to put Millions of Dollars into the hands of Globalist Politicans and thier specific interests.
    I would question if a representative from guniess was actually there or got this information second hand or from obscure film.

  5. I don’t buy it. The Earth goes through phases and I believe it’s currently undergoing a warming trend. To say something as insignificant as Man can affect the climate is ridiculous, and the fact that politicians like Al Gore have found a way to make a fortune off the back of it makes me even more convinced it’s crap.

  6. Main argument I see is “This problem will cost me money, therefore this problem does not exist.”. I really don’t see how taxing people will make a bit of difference, and the only thing it’s accomplishing is causing people to rationalize that it isn’t their fault while clutching their material wealth to their chests.

    What would fix it? One of two things, both of which require the whole planet to give up its obsession with oil. One is a shift to wind, solar, hydroelectric, and geothermal power, which some European countries are already doing. The other is if ETs, possibly from one of those conveniently discovered planets, drops in and hands us some “zero point energy device” or something similar, which then crushes the value of oil and triggers economic chaos in oil dependent countries and triggers a desperate last stand in middle east countries dependent on oil income, likely including nuclear strikes before they’re reduced to poverty. Otherwise I don’t see things changing anytime soon, no matter how much people are taxed.

  7. Nothing about nothing ice melts ice accumulates, it moves it cracks, it been going on for millions of years, Your acting like this has never happened before.

  8. This is the type of krap that makes me certain this global warming is all a hoax.
    James Blog conveniently omitted the fact the ground under the ice is dramatically rising in temperature due to volcanism and several volcanic steam vents have recently appeared in the area. James Blog joined a consensus that means everyone agrees to say collectively what no one believes individually because it’s the only way to get payed.
