Video - Watch the Disintegration of the Largest Glacier Ever Recorded on Film

Glaciers are melting at an ever expanding rate all around the world and this video documents the disintegration of the largest glacier ever recorded on film. This glacier has ice spires that are two or three times taller than the tallest buildings in New York City. In the last ten years it has retreated more than in the previous century.

This video is excerpted from the Documentary "Chasing Ice" which was screened by delegates at COP 19. Glaciers take millennias to form and due to human hubris, they are dismantling before our very eyes. The powerful documentary aims to record them for posterity.

Given the fact that much of the world's population lives on or near the coast, rising seas have dramatic implications for all of humanity.
