Look Ma, I'm Retreating
Between May and December of 2007, the Columbia Glacier in Alaska retreated half a mile and lost 400 billion gallons of water. This mind-blowing time-lapse video, has 436 frames and was shot by the Extreme Ice Survey Project to highlight the effects of global warming. Equal parts beautiful and overwhelmingly alarming, this would be a good chain letter-esque email to cc all your friends on.
Major shout out to National Geographic for always bringing us the coolest content in their magazines and websites, and Gabriela from LA who first g-spotted it.
