Stein Glacier, 2011 by James Balog and Extreme Ice Survey

Check out Extreme Ice Survey, a group founded in 2007 by James Balog, specifically to photograph the planet’s changing ecosystems. I hope that people can learn how climate change is affecting many parts of the world and that they perspective can be influenced by the photos.
