Time Lapse Photography Shows the Urgency of Why We Have To Deal With Global Warming

Categories creative commons, learning, life, politics

This is one of the more important TED Talks I’ve watched.

Photographer James Balog has spent the last few years dedicating himself to creating a record of just how bad Global Warming actually is. He’s positioned dozens of time lapse cameras in glacial and alpine regions, and makes films showing how the glaciers are retreating, releasing millions of litres of water into the world’s oceans.

He’s showing how the rate of glacial retreat is accelerating.

Please watch this video. It’s a twenty-minute journey into the wonder of nature, and the mystery of humankind’s ability to destroy everything we know.
