72204 ratings | 55678110 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.

But the anti-American fascist criminal mobster Trump and his minions of the GOP say that climate change is all just fake news, and we all know that the Trump and the GOP and the right wing propagandist wouldn't lie! of course, the reason they cling to that is that they are bought and paid for by the fossil fuel industry, their real clients, and evidence indicates that it is the fossil fuel exhaust is causing the global warming, and since trump and the GOP are working for the fossil fuel industry, they have to deny global warming and climate change! fact mean noting to trump or the GOP, or the NRA, or Republicans in general!

Serious question, why not just let the ice melt? I don't understand the big deal about the earth warming up a little. At this scale, the earth will shape itself no matter what we do to stop it. And no I don't believe the human footprint is the only contributing factor in this.

So terrifying. Imagine being a hiker on there when that happened? Here's a fun game, pick a spot on the ice you think you might be able to survive. See how far you get in the video.

Am I the only one who sees a humongous whale at the 1:57 mark? I know it's not, but in a still shot at 1:57 and w/o the scaling I would say, "Hey look it's a whale facing to the left".

Do you have the 75 minute version!!??
TheGamerTutorial Kiddo (4 months ago)
I know this iceberg. It is called the Greenland glacier. Greenland glacier is a massive iceberg and is one of the largest glaciers in the world. In Illulissat Kangia, the massive iceberg started flipping over and this is the second clip of Greenland flipping over.

This took 75 minutes to stop calving like Manhattan.

I get that the Glaciers have to eventually break-off and melt to bring balance to nature in the oceans, but to state that it's a horrible and a devastating event, I'm quite surprised by how they think it shouldn't happen. They should ask themselves, what makes the world go around or what makes evolution evolve. Either they are stuck on the idea that this has been caused by Global Warming or they are chasing an idea which doesn't exist. However, Nature does exist and this has just been proven to them, and yet, they are looking for negative explanations as to why it's happening. It's Nature, It Just Happens. Accept it!

The Manhattan overlay towards the end did the trick for me. Until I saw that I wasn't sure of the scale of what I was looking at, and, as it turned out, was in fact underestimating the scale substantially. I love how the more massive something is, the _slower_ it seems to move in reaction to common physical forces like gravity.

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

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
Yegor T (6 months ago)
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.
