Extreme Ice Survey Stuns Global Warming Skeptics with Time-Lapse Photography of Glacial Loss
Posted Oct 26 2009 11:00pm
The old axiom that seeing is believing is seldom more true than with respect to global warming. Recently, a friend of mine, who is plugged in to the cloak and dagger battle which is the battle against fossil fuel companies who seek to destroy climate reform, described the move toward renewal energy as a fight to the death. He was right on.
Disinformation and feel-good propaganda are two key tools used by advocates of the status quo and they use them to great effect. Fortunately, there are advocates of reform who know how to wield the truth with equal skill. Noted photographer James Balog and his crack team at Extreme Ice Survey have come through with a multimedia presentation which rivals An Inconvenient Truth in its resonance.
The visuals are simply amazing and, most importantly, undeniable. My position on the results of the Extreme Ice Survey is that everyone needs to watch the chilling images of glacial loss, no pun intended.
