Back in the beginning of 2010, reporter Anthony Lane and I profiled James Balog, whose study of receding glaciers through photography and years-long time-lapse videos of melting ice has made Balog a leading voice on climate change.
Balog and his team's Extreme Ice Survey are also the topic of the 2012 documentary Chasing Ice, which won an award at the recent Sundance Film Festival and was just announced the winner of the feature film competition at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival (which at nine years old claims to be the "largest cinema event in Montana").
We heard about the honor in this blog post from Skylar Browning of the Missoula Independent, the paper which reprinted our original story. Congratulations to Balog and crew.
