Earth's Polar Ice caps are slowly disappearing—and a photographer has just proved it

A photographer has captured stunning—yet worrying images of our planet’s polar ice caps. As things are now, Earth’s polar ice sheets are disappearing and we need to do something to stop it.

Diane Tuft, an environmental photographer has published the results of an extraordinary journey where she captured stunning—yet worrying images of the Arctic Melting.

On her long journey, the photographer traveled to the North Pole, Norway and visited the icebergs of Greenland in order to document the Arctic circle before the ice-capped environments is forever last.

All images were documented in the artist’s book, The Arctic Melt: Images of a Disappearing Landscape.

Speaking to Architectural Digest, Tuft said: “For the past 20 years, I have focused on capturing the environment’s visual effects on our landscape. Global warming has caused the Arctic to melt faster than any other area on earth, and I was compelled to photograph its landscape before it disappears. I hope that with visual documentation my work will demonstrate to the public that climate change is real and that we need to encourage policies that address the issue of global warming before it is too late.”

The stunning images were documented during the Summers of 2015 and 2016 as the photographer made her way using planes, boats, and helicopters which eventually took her tom some of the most remote and inaccessible places on our planet. The results are beyond worrying.

“While this was an amazing experience, it disturbed me to know that my trip through the Arctic Ocean was only possible because of the Arctic melt,’ she said. For thousands of years, the sea ice during the Arctic winters through the month of June was always too thick for surface vessels to access the North Pole.”

“But now, because of climate change, our vessel was the third earliest to ever reach the Pole and the only vessel to arrive during the summer solstice.”

In an effort to raise awareness, Tuft hopes that her images will help us understand what is going on with our planet, in hopes to increase the discussion on carbon emissions which have drastically increased in the last couple of decades in an effort to slow the effects of climate change.

These stunning images come shortly after scientists found worrying data on Antarctica. Mostly caused because of global warming, experts have identified a MASSIVE crack in the Antarctic ice shelf Larsen C, scientists say that it will soon give away, becoming one of the largest icebergs on the planet. In fact, it might be an iceberg twice the size of the SMALLEST European country.

The massive iceberg THREE TIMES the size of London is barely holding onto the remaining ice by a mass of around 20 kilometers.

Shocked experts discovered that “about 20 kilometers of crack left so that the mass of ice is completely fractured and falls off into the sea”, according to a report by the Argentine Ministry of Defense.

Larsen C is the FOURTH largest ice shelf in Antarctica and according to reports from Nature, since early this year, its crack has moved at least 10 kilometers more. Currently, the crack is already 175 kilometers long.

Experts are convinced that the increasing crack is definitely tied to “global climate change, although there are still no conclusions”.

  1. The real problem does not rely on climate change but what has caused it ffom the behinning, since the intriduction of digital trcnology Hd higher in the atmosphere is emitting radiation in our atmosphere creating climate change, affecting weather patterns don’t look down from the problem look up to the sky that’s causing the problem.look at the source where the summers world wide are getting hotter more than ever, weather patterns are changing dramatically since there is a lot of heat up there so is there large amounts of radiation spreading through out the globe, creating spiralling radiation clusters in the clouds. I said for years we should have had analogue technology rather jumping to far forward in putting HD digital higher up in out atmosphere. The best way is to reverse physics by having anslogue technology which is much lower, and let the our atmosphere Erik its way to a better circulation of the clouds so it would work bumpy its own strings of patterns to help the clouds and formation to breath bring weather patterns back to normal, but there is more work to be done yet

    1. And analogue tech is much much healthier…but 72 HAARP heaters and the aluminum, barium, & strontium particles are ruining what makes out plant livable. This is being done deliberately….why?

  2. Global warming? The HAARP technology that sent mega heating units into the inosophere, creating a hole, had nothing to do with this? The weaponization of weather and the 72 HAARP heaters around the world have a lot to do with the climate change. So does the blanket that was created via aerosol spraying of nano particles. Blanket may reflect heat, but they also insulate. Is this site a Deep State site and not a science site?

  3. Yeah lets stop it, how? turn down the thermostat! You can not change natural cycles of the planet you wingnuts, you give humanity too much credit.

    1. Chief executive officer of MSN!, is assisting folks to begin with “Work at home” method, that People have been doing for over 12 months now. These days only, I made about $36k up till now with no more than my home computer and some free time, even though i have a regular nine to five job. Even everyone new to this, actually make $50/per h successfully and the income can go even very high as time passes… This is how i started >> http://kxk­.­me/?TPVJA207

  4. Managing director of Yahoo!, is advising users to get started with “Work at home” method, that Loads of people have been doing for over one year now. These days alone, I generated approximately $36k up till now with no more than my desktop and some leisure time, however i have a regular 9 to 5 job. Even people not used to this, can make $50/per h easily and the profit can go much very high with time… This is how i started >> http://adultadda­.­net/2Y4
