Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet.

With a band of young adventurers in tow, photographer James Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers. Balog's hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate.

Traveling with a young team of adventurers by helicopter, canoe and dog sled across three continents, Balog risks his career and his well-being in pursuit of the biggest story in human history.

The documentary won several awards, amongst others the 2014 Emmy for Outstanding Nature Programming.

You should watch this if you are curious to learn some more about climate change, it's causes and effects and get an idea of the beauty of nature we are risking to lose.
