Beauty of glaciers turns nature photographer from skeptic to climate activist

What began as a fascination with the sublime forms, colors and movements of Arctic glaciers has transformed one of America's leading nature photographers into a crusader for political action on climate change. The photographer, James Balog, once thought the climate system was too complex, too large to be affected by the actions of humans. After several years of documenting the slow retreat of the Earth's ice packs through the lens of a Nikon camera, though, Balog founded a project that captures through time-lapse photography the slow degradation of glaciers in Greenland, Iceland, Alaska and the Rocky Mountains.
