James Balog’s “Chasing Ice”

James Balog’s “Chasing Ice”

Before the documentary was actually made, its creator James Balog even didn't have any idea of making it. Balog initially began with a $3 million project called the Extreme Ice Survey. Under the initiative, he took lead to explore the glaciers in a time span of three years. He wanted to investigate the effect of climate on the glaciers.

Therefore, cameras were set up around Iceland, Greenland and Alaska which were programmed to take the pictures at regular time intervals. These cameras operated over a long time to capture the snaps of the climatic change in the region.

The idea was to make a video to raise money for the project initiated by Balog. But later, it took the form of a magnificent documentary "Chasing Ice" that featured glaciers and saw them melting like butter.

It also showed the Cryocinite holes i. e. small round melted ice portions that add to the beauty of the glaciers in the nature. However, behind the beauty of the nature that lies in nature and is captured in this documentary presented a depressing warning for us. The melting glaciers raise an alarming concern about the devastating climate changes that are occurring and posing threat to the environment. Global warming is a big reason to worry no doubt.
