Documentary offers undeniable evidence of global warming
The Kansas City Star
The documentary, “Chasing Ice,” should be in the mainstream movie theaters, running day and night to sold-out audiences.
Kansas City area residents, however, are made to feel fortunatel that the film at least has been playing at the Tivoli theater. Jeff Orlowski’s documentary follows nature photographer James Balog as he documents melting glaciers, beginning in 2007. Balog uses time-lapsed photography to chronicle the disappearing glaciers in Greenland, Montana, Alaska and other places on the planet.
The images are both beautiful and disturbing because the ice provides a delicate balance for the Earth’s ecosystem. Yet the glaciers are dying at a rapid pace.
More people need to see this film and come away with a new resolve to have a smaller carbon footprint — drive less, fly less, lower thermosthats and use less fossil fuels. The planet, which supports all life, is hurting, and nothing is being done to stop the pain.
