Eyewitness to climate change through timelapse photography
The Geological Society of America recently published a study that includes eye-popping photos of the effect of climate change on some of the world's most notable glaciers. One of the biggest concerns among climate scientists is the role that melting glaciers will have in causing a potentially catastrophic rise in sea level that could/would inundate some of the most populated areas on earth. In this "Extreme Ice Survey," photos taken at regular intervals since 2007 have been compiled in a dramatic timelapse video.
