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.

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.

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.
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!
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.
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.
DO NOT BLAME TRUMP....HE DID NOT DO THIS..IT IS MOTHER EARTH AND MAN MADE CLIMATE CHANGERS LIKE THE GOVERNMENT CALLED HAARP, ALSO THE PRESIDENT IS WORKING CLOSELY W NASA TO HELP CLIMATE CONTROL...AND GOD HAS A PLAN TO END THE WORLD AS WE NOW KNOW IT..THE PLATELET SHIFT,EARTHQUAKES,MUDLSIDES,VOLCANOES..THOSE ARE FROM THE EARTHS CORE....NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT THAT....SO ONCE AGAIN STOP YOUR STUPIDITY OF BLAME....AND THE NATURAL EARTHS DESTRUCTION ON ONE MAN.....ONLY A SIMPLETON THINKS THIS WAY......
NO ONE IN OUR WORLD COULD EVER IMAGINE SUCH PHENOMENA OCCURENCE TO WITNESS THE ENORMITY HOW NATURE CONTINUES TO ALTER THE WORLD INTO FASINATING, AWE INSPIRING FEATURES SHOW THE HUMAN RACE THE UNIVERSE IS CREATED BY NATURAL NOT MADE, CAUSED BY, OR PROCESSED BY HUMANKIND, NOR ANY RELIGIOUS BELIEF, CREATE INCREADIBLE SPECTACULATION BE REMEBERED FOR YEARS TO COME..
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.
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.
Learning how to draw cartoon animals from the farm is not such a difficult task! Weve grown up surrounded by them! Farm animals are everywhere: In blockbuster movies, childs books, greeting cards. their shapes and images are printed in our minds!
In this section, I will show you how to determine what are the physical uniqueness of each animal and how to work with them. Then, you can practice drawing each cartoon character using basic shapes.
You will have the opportunity to make nice illustrations, practice sketching and cartooning using short easy lessons and complete your creation using a drawing software to create vector art if you want to! Cartoon drawing is really fun once you get into it!
Dont be afraid to try until you get it right. This method is really simple, but requires practice and observation. So, sit back and relax. Learn how to draw animals from the farm and start your journey on a good note!
Lets try s few basic characters to get started! :)
A cute turkey to begin with.
In this first tutorial, you can learn how to draw a fun turkey mostly made from small rectangles and large circular shapes. The posture of the character is really interesting. Not only is it easier to draw than a front version, but its also easier to add some perspective (as we can see with the legs). The fact that we just need to draw one wing is also interesting.
Most of these cartoon animals are not filled with complex textures or digital effects. In this case, the subject is filled with plain colors and only a few basic details (inside the tail) were added.
A nice turtle also from a side view.
