Posted by Talyn Brown-Wolf, March 5, 2017

Photographer James Balog and his team were examining a glacier when their cameras caught something out of the ordinary… The incident took place in Greenland, where James and his mates were gathering images from cameras that had been deployed around the Arctic Circle over the years… James and his crew were looking for some good shots for an upcoming documentary, but no one was prepared for what would soon unfold in front of their eyes… In less than an hour and 15 minutes, Balog and his team and saw a piece of glacier the size of the Lower Manhattan fall into the ocean… The historic event has been recorded in the Guinness Book of Records and clearly shows how serious the situation is for Earth’s climate… As far as anyone knows, it was an unprecedented geological disaster. Unfortunately, though, it’s unlikely to be the last one of its kind.
