This Chasing Ice footage is almost three years old but I’d never watched it before this morning. (It was posted six days ago on Upworthy.) A Manhattan-sized glacier breaking off in one big craaahhhhck and groan and kuhr-sploosshhhh, as captured by photographer James Balog in Greenland. “That was really the smoking gun showing how far outside normal, natural variation the world has become,” Balog said in a 2012 interview with ThinkProgress. “And that’s when I started to really get the message that this was something consequential and serious and needed to be dealt with.” More Arctic landmass has melted away in the last 20 years than over the previous 10,000 years. Response from hinterland knuckle-draggers: “Drill, baby, drill!”
