I just watched this the other night, it is an interesting look into how quickly our world is changing due to global warming! Your thoughts?
This is the first of 5 parts!

I actually saw a part of this some days ago on NG, I thought it was really good and very interesting.

Thought this was going to be about meth.

That ice calving they witnessed was absolutely incredible. Well not incredible that this is happening.

@martijn, I think it’s eye opening. This is happening! Faster than we can imagine! There is no turning back either. I’d be interested to see what the difference is from the end of their research shown in this documentary to now.


@adamm0ss
, Yes, I figured someone would think it was about meth. Sorry to disappoint!


@brainnectar
, It is incredible! Imagine experiencing this in person..intense.

@inkblot, the massive power that those glaciers had when flipping over was absolutely majestic. You only realized how big they were when the helicopter was just a little dot compared to the size of them.

@inkblot, film makers are from Boulder! Saw special screening at the Boulder Theater with director/cinematographer and James Balog the photographer. It was a great film with a packed house- the ice calving scene was very intense and upsetting even, especially to some of the little kids in the audience which caused some crying. :( Makes me sad thinking about it–
There was a discussion/QA at the end, and Balog actually holds the belief that it is NOT too late. I don’t think that was to be uplifting or to bullshit people but he obviously encourages changing the energy consumption paradigm on a grand scale and educating people- I was blown away by several scenes *pretty much nonstop I guess* about the extent of the damage.
If you can watch it on a nice big screen I would suggest it! Suggest it to your friends and family, try to get it screened at schools and local film houses. Also check out: Extreme Ice Survey

@adamm0ss, I also suspected a drug reference.
