In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth's changing climate. Chasing Ice is the story of one man's mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey.

While this documentary is sometimes clunky in its execution, it is an overall thing of beauty. I found splendor, even in the destruction of our glaciers. Well worth watching.

There is very little footage of glaciers melting, and it's more of a movie about the people and process of filming the glaciers.

Beautiful photos, fantastic video, amazing story of James Balog's quest to photo document glacier recession. Articulate and compelling. Highly recommended. A stake in the heart of the climate change deniers.

Fascinating, frightening. Crazy, cool. Stunning visuals, beautiful and clearly a reality check for global warming. The final calving footage is amazing.

This documentary features some truly breathtaking photography as it tells the story of a climate change study that provides dramatic visual evidence of the disappearance of the planet's glaciers.
