It’s not easy to photograph climate change, a slow, subtle process that develops over time. But when a glacier breaks up, the images can be breathtaking — and a sobering reminder of the trouble we are in. @Reuters photographer @lucas_jackson_captured this when he was in Greenland with NASA scientists earlier this year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After seeing such a massive chunk of ice rumble into the sea, Jackson said he fully grasped the urgency of the issue. “It was interesting watching that, thinking about how much ice that is from that one event — and that there's thousands of these glaciers around Greenland and that's happening constantly.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The massive island is in the Arctic, which is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, and it is the largest contributor to the rising sea levels that could become catastrophic for coastal cities around the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
