The film footage is a powerful statement about the effects of global warming that is difficult to dismiss in any climate change discussion.
"It's like watching Manhattan break apart in front of your eyes", says one of the researchers in describing the largest iceberg calving ever filmed. The film describes 7.4 cubic km of ice crashing off the Illulssat glacier in Greenland. The movie's mission is to document the melting of arctic ice .
The video may be used as an introduction to any unit on climate change. The film footage of the calving sequences is dramatic. Following the viewing, ask students what questions are raised by the video. One would expect that students will want to know what is happening; why is it happening; what are the consequences. These questions then become the focus of the climate change unit.
