How icebergs became a metaphor for something quite deep

Icebergs | The Point Magazine



Time-lapse videography has made the retreat of the world’s glaciers dramatically clear. James Balog, photographer for the award-winning 2014 documentary Chasing Ice
and director of the Extreme Ice Survey, calls ice “the canary in the
global coal mine … the place where we can see and touch and feel climate
change.” The film’s most dramatic sequence shows an iceberg the size of
lower Manhattan splitting and rolling off Greenland’s Ilulissat
Glacier.
