In 2005, National Geographic sent photographer James Balog to the Arctic with one instruction—capture climate change. The one-time assignment quickly turned to obsession: His team spent years in the hellacious cold to film the Extreme Ice Survey, a dramatic, multi-year time-lapse of Arctic ice falling into the Atlantic Ocean. This Emmy Award–winning film (the Huffington Post calls it “hauntingly beautiful”) chronicle’s Balog’s frustrating and brilliant quest to bring climate change to the forefront of global consciousness.
