Documenting Arctic Sea Ice Melt

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

From Camille Seaman's Melting Away collection. (Camille Seaman)

Arctic sea ice continues to shrink at record levels because of climate change. With polar ice melting at record rates, there is a strong desire to document the vanishing icebergs before they are lost forever. The Takeaway speaks with iceberg and storm photographer Camille Seaman about her painstaking efforts to capture the loss.

I know this is dumb: Everytime, I clean out the fridge and have to throw away the wilted Iceberg lettuce, I worry about the North Pole and global weirding. Maybe I'll start photographing my wilted lettuce.
