AK-1 Columbia glacier by Extreme Ice Survey
Updated: Opps. I’ve lost the right to embed the video. Here is the direct link to Vimeo.
This is a time-lapse video showing the shrinkage of the Columbia glacier from 2007 to 2011. It is quite amazing to see how much of the ice has retreated in a space of just 4 years. This is one of the reasons why I chose to visit Alaska this year, just to catch a glimpse of something majestic and beautiful before it dies, and also why climate change remains one of the most important planetary issues mankind faces today.
