Chasing Ice Documentary Covers Glacial Meltdown

The OFFICIAL TRAILER for 2012 Sundance Award-Winning film “Chasing Ice,” opening in theaters starting November 2012.

In the spring of 2005, National Geographic photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change and a cynic about the nature of academic research. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.
