70706 ratings | 55381647 views
This rare footage has gone on record as the largest glacier calving event ever captured on film, by the 2016 Guiness Book of World Records. On May 28, 2008, Adam LeWinter and Director Jeff Orlowski filmed a historic breakup at the Ilulissat Glacier in Western Greenland. The calving event lasted for 75 minutes and the glacier retreated a full mile across a calving face three miles wide. The height of the ice is about 3,000 feet, 300-400 feet above water and the rest below water. Footage produced by James Balog (http://jamesbalog.com) and the Extreme Ice Survey (http://extremeicesurvey.org) Chasing Ice won the award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and a 2013 Emmy Award for Outstanding Nature Programming. It has won over 40 awards at festivals worldwide, and was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song, "Before My Time" by J. Ralph featuring Scarlett Johansson and Joshua Bell.

This was just terrifyingly miraculous yet horribly beautiful. I was crying tears of joy. In the end I was comfortingly scared.

As spectacular as this is, it's not a glacier if it's on water. They only form on land. This is sea ice.

Awesome video... but I genuinely hate how they keep you disoriented he entire fuckin time so you have no idea the scale.

It's only after seeing the Manhattan overlay that I realised why everything seemed to move in slow motion. The ice is just so enormous that it's motion looks slow

Terrifying, majestic, captivating and very sad at the same time. Sad because it is the result of global warming which kills thousands of people every year. The huge iceberg at 1:50 is an unbelievable likeness of a whale!!! The mass killing of the whales was the first huge step of human race madness in destroying the environment and to the resulting environmental catastrophe. This is a Divinely symbolic video!!! Thank you very much to those who captured it.

I have walked under glaciers and slept in a tent right above them. There is nothing like the deep thuds that massive glaciers can make while they show that they are living. The audio of this event is awesome. I have paid to watch chasing ice. it is worth it.
Alex Tocqueville (1 month ago)
Wow. This planet really doesn't give a shit whether we're here or not, does it? I just watched an event involving more mass and energy than a nuclear bomb, and in planetary terms, it was like 1 quadrillionth of what the earth does every day when nobody's watching. I understand why people are fascinated by frozen mountains. They literally have not a single similarity to anything human, or even anything biologically living. And yet they're so fucking alive!
We're fucked

Amazing footage. I am sure I saw a giant blue 🐳 break through the ice ❄ barrier. No mention was made 🤔
Shows up, records something, receives award. George Carlin is rolling in his grave.

The Icebergs ARE melting, and it has nothing to do with Climate Change. So, why are they melting? Answer is, and no one is saying because of the Democratic agenda, is the Earth's magnetic pole has shifted, as it does every many thousand of years or so, causing the same climate as always, but in different parts of the Earth. The Democrats want you to believe it's Climate Warming because of carbon emissions, or Man's interactions with the Earth, when in fact, it's nothing more that what has happened to our Earth many, many times throughout the life of Earth. The Sierra Desert was once under water, and Australia use to be cold. Things change, and that's that, however some have made multi-millions on this scare tactic about Global Warming. Sure, in parts, as it always does, but not all parts of our planet is warming up. Some are cooling down. Climate Change is part of the Earth's history, and will continue to far in the future. If the climate in your country, or part of the US is becoming too hot, or cold, move. Everything changes, nothing stays the same! I know this, the world is experiencing this, and our President knows this. I would suggest everyone stop blaming humankind for the problems, and begin to look in the mirror to fine where many of our problems are. Maybe, just maybe we all can open our eyes, and begin to understand the Big Picture of our Earth.

Can anyone expalin why they tip over?, I would have thought that the lower ice was more compressed and therefore more dense.
No doubt more weight is under the surface. I would assume it's due to the water rushing underneath causing them to roll "not tip".
Lane Sandelin (2 months ago)
I wonder how much gold is under all that
gregg4164 (2 months ago)
And why exactly do you think that is? Well i'll tell you what it isn't. It isn't this false so called settled science of Global Warming caused by man. The oceans are warming due to volcanic and seismic energy. You are not melting ice hundreds of feet thick with an air temperature of a half of a degree Celsius. The only way that ice can creak up is from beneath.

it's not a miracle that the glaciers melted, it's an "abrupt" climate change event, a man-made event, yes, it is horrifying to see this, to see the last ice on Earth and the sealing of mankind's fate - extinction, we have failed our own survival.

Of course there are natural cycles to this living planet - but just like more has melted in 10 years versus the previous 100 years - there will be times of glacial-building as well. It's not like government-supported 'scientists' are trying to tell us, it's just going to keep melting until there's nothing left. In fact - right now; July, 2018 - there is more recorded Arctic Ice than ever recorded and just two years ago, all the crying liberals going on about how the 'poor polar bears' were running out of ice. Earth is a living, breathing planet. Shit's gonna change over time - back and forth - over and over.

Mike .R. Also, evidence of climate change has been corroborated time and time again by research from other countries and independent research groups.
Gabrielle Shull (2 months ago)
Mike .R. Actually, according to the NSIDC, “July 2018 was the ninth lowest July extent in the satellite record.” Whose ass did you pull record high arctic sea ice levels out of?

God’s glory in all his creation. Human beings, namely scientists, believe they have all the answers. They ( We) know Nothing! God could plunge this earth into darkness, an icy tundra or whatever he wanted in the blink of an eye! They run around screaming global warming is destroying the earth! No! Sin in mankind is destroying the World and God’s earth. Almighty God is not unaware of the earth’s status. He designed and created it and all it’s life. Focus on the Faith we are called to have in his one and only Son, Jesus Christ who died on the cross and was resurrected to eternal life for US! Focus on the TRUTH! God will take care of the rest.
