3211194-1656790408.jpg

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – Environmental photographer James Balog says that people assume geological change is something that happened in the distant past. But the truth is these processes are happening around us every day. Balog heads the Extreme Ice Survey - a project which uses time-lapse photography to capture melting glaciers around the world. He's in Utah this week and joins Doug to talk about the shocking speed of these changes and what it teaches us about our global climate.

James Balog will give a free presentation Thursday, October 1st at 7:00 p.m. at the University of Utah Fine Arts Auditorium (Art and Architecture Building). For more information on the event, click here or call 801-608-9652.
