There's so much beauty in every inch of this place. In our planet's oceans, and rivers, and rock faces. In its fields, and forests, and plains. Every atom and molecule coexists in a dance that, when working to its full potential, whirs, and marries, and bursts with life.
For every move *we* make, however, and every place we touch, there is a consequence. Whether it's our footprints in the snow, bent blades of grass as we wander through an open field, or the scraps of man-made objects that we leave behind.
That's why it's essential that we look around and determine how much we truly value our planet. And sometimes, it helps to join together and share a conversation about how best to move forward.

The scale of these icebergs along the western side of the #antarcticpeninsula is hard to grasp. But consider this: our 85-foot boat would have fit beneath the shadowy overhanging leading edge of the first block in this short vid. They were the size of entire NYC neighborhoods, sometimes 20 stories high. And every once so often you'd hear a crack, as if a cannon had been fired. If lucky you might see a #waterfall of #ice plunging into the #sea. If not, you'd look around and wonder how big - and how close - the new chunk might be. It was frightening and spectacular and mesmerizing and humbling and utterly, utterly, utterly exhilarating. #oceans #climatechange w/ @natgeo @natgeopristineseas @paulnicklen @ladzinski @cristinamittermeier @andy_mann @ianvaso @pattersonimages @lilienfrederic @ignacioferrando360 @shane_moore_jh @shanemoorefilms

A mysterious 70-mile crack has opened up in an ice sheet in #Antarctica which scientists say threatens to destroy a nearby research station.
The #HalleyVI research station is currently being relocated as the crack continues to grow bigger. “If [the crack] continues to move and the ice breaks off, the station would be on the wrong side of the crack,” Athena Dinar, a spokesperson for the British Antarctic Survey said.

Livescience.com reports:

Snapped by scientists on #NASA’s #IceBridge mission, the shot shows a rift in Larsen C, an ice shelf that is floating off the #AntarcticPeninsula. When the crack eventually spreads across the entire ice shelf, it will create an iceberg the size of the state of Delaware, according to IceBridge. That’s around 2,491 square miles (6,451 square kilometers). As of Nov. 10, when the IceBridge scientists observed this crack, it was 70 miles (112 km) long and more than 300 feet (91 meters) wide. The dark depths of the crack plunge down about a third of a mile (0.5 km), all the way through the ice to the ocean below.

According to NASA Ice, an Earth sciences program at NASA, this rift is relatively new — it showed growth on satellite imagery just this year. The U.K.-based Antarctic research group the MIDAS Project first observed the rift in 2014 and has been tracking it ever since.

Larsen C is #Antarctica’s fourth-largest ice shelf, and it holds back the land-based glaciers just behind it: Once the ice shelf goes, those slow-flowing glaciers have one less barrier in their journey toward the sea. In 2002, the nearby ice shelf Larsen B partially collapsed after showing similar rifting, NASA’s Earth Observatory reported earlier this year, when it showed the collapse alongside a satellite image of the growing Larsen C crevasse.

According to the MIDAS Project, the eventual calving of the Delaware-size sheet of ice would remove between 9 percent and 12 percent of Larsen C’s surface area and may lead to the crumbling of the entire ice shelf.

65 degrees 13 minutes South, and beyond beautiful the entire way 🇦🇶 #Antarctica #AntarcticPeninsula #Midnatsol #iceberg #bucketlist

Antartica, easily the most remote place on earth I have had the privilege visiting. While out on a zodiac I was able to capture these striking ice formations. Truly breathtaking. #AntarcticPeninsula

Camping in Antarctica gives you an opportunity not only to capture and experience the changing light, but to really feel you have experienced Antarctica. Always remember to take a moment to appreciate the silence and magic of this incredible place.

Like ice? Travel to Antarctica early in the season when the snow is still pristine, penguin highways (their little walking routes) are still white and clean, and beaches are covered in snow. November trips are fantastic for photographers wanting to capture white landscapes. 📸by @lifeinamatchbox with @naturalworldsafaris and @oneoceanexp

Filmed in Antarctica in December 2016.

December trips are fantastic for seeing more of the peninsula. Penguin colonies are messier than November when everything is pristine, but there is slightly less sea ice blocking passage through the narrow channels so ships can get further south. The first trips which attempt to cross the Antarctic Circle usually run in December.

The 90% of an #iceberg that is submerged is a ghostly presence in the #southernocean off #antarctica. #ice #water #iceiscool #blue #shadesofblue #ocean #antarcticpeninsula #mvushuaia #bergybits

The goal was always Antarctica, but the plan has had to be revised a few times over the years. I'm pleased to say that now it's official...Antarctica in January 2018!
