James Balog has spent his career pushing the artistic and adventure boundaries of nature photography. For the past five years, he's been capturing the impact of climate change on glaciers, culminating in the powerful film Chasing Ice. What he documented was catastrophic—and should be required viewing for every policymaker on earth.

 

“We’ve all skied nasty rain crust before, but this was something else,” James Balog told me when we met up in Ouray, Colorado, in early January 2012. “Absolutely, unbelievably horrible.”

WIll Power: Standout Q&A with Will Steger

INTERVIEW BY Nathan Mueller

Dogsledding from Russia to Canada via the North Pole? Check. Trekking 1,600 miles across Greenland? Check. Traveling the longest-possible route across Antarctica? Check. In the past 45 years, polar explorer and environmental educator Will Steger has journeyed to the ends of the earth to raise awareness for some of the most vulnerable ecosystems on the planet. A Minnesota native, Steger is a true eyewitness to the dramatic environmental changes occurring in polar regions. When he isn’t exploring, he and his foundation are working to catalyze national and international leadership on climate change. Momentum caught up with Steger shortly after he returned from “Expedition Copenhagen” with a delegation of 12 Midwestern youth.

Red Wing Republican EagleBy Will Steger: Published Wednesday, December 10, 2008 MINNEAPOLIS —This past year I had the unique opportunity to return to Ellesmere Island and Greenland in the high Arctic to see firsthand the impacts of global warming and to bring a large online audience of educators, students and media along.

What I found was no surprise: the ice is continuing to melt and the temperatures continue to rise. This summer, two major ice shelves of Ellesmere Island at the northern tip of North America broke up. About half of the summer sea ice on the Arctic Ocean is gone.But climate change isn’t just melting the summer sea ice in the Arctic — it’s being felt right here in Minnesota. We’re seeing changes in vegetation and habitat that threaten to erase our Minnesota treasures and forever alter our important industries like farming, recreation and tourism.

Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine Magazine Article A Hundred Twin Citians Who Make Things Happen.
Will Steger
, Environmentalist

No one, with the recent exception of Al Gore, is more closely or widely listened to on environmental topics than the sixty-three-year-old polar explorer and educator. After several decades of Arctic expeditions, Steger, a Twin Cities native headquartered in Ely, has dedicated his life to spreading the word about global warming and its attendant perils. His global standing is unquestioned - his many honors include National Geographic Adventure magazine's lifetime achievement award. Here at home, his audience continues to grow, most notably in corporate and political circles not historically associated with urgent environmental concerns. In October, Steger joined by Tim Pawlenty at a Duluth conference on climate-change-related threats to Lake Superior. The governor had earlier announced tentative plans for a 2008 fact-finding trip to the Canadian Arctic with Steger, whom he compared to Paul Revere "issuing a call to action".

Edited by William Swanson, With Melissa Colgan, Katie Derdoski, Erin Gulden, Sarah Howard, Steve Marsh, Adam Platt, Abby Van Ness, and Megan Wiley.

UST Magazine Article Why every little thing we do still matters.
by Will Steger '66 : Photo by Mike Ekern '02

As one of nine kids raised in Richfield, Minn., my parents gave us total freedom to explore, just as long as we received good grades and stayed on the right side of the law. At 15, inspired by the adventures of Huck Finn, my brother and I took a motorboat down the Mississippi River from Minneapolis to New Orleans and back; this was my first and last motorized expedition. Then in 1964, as a 19-year-old junior at St. Thomas, I purchased a tract of land on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area, three miles from the nearest road.

Above and Beyond Magazine ArticlePolar explorer and educator Will Steger plans to lead a 1,400 mile international dogsled expedition across Ellesmere Island in April.

In the 2008 installment of Global Warming 101, a series of expeditions designed to raise awareness of global warming, Steger will lead six people, aged 21 to 26 in the footsteps of legendary explorers and visit ice shelves that have either collapsed or are on the brink of collapse.

The expedition will travel over northern Ellesmere, an area that has undergone significant warming, to document the effect of climate change on the island. These changes include the major break-up of the Ward Hunt Ice Shelf in the summer of 2002, and the calving of the Ayles Ice Shelf in August 2005.

by Bryan Walsh:

Do you want to see the effects of global warming? Then head north. Temperatures are increasing faster in the far north than they are in the more temperate zones of the world. Recent studies indicate that the North Pole could be underwater during the summer in less than 10 years, instead of coated in thick sea ice. But seeing the Arctic terrain up close isn't easy, unless you're handy with a dogsled, so Will Steger is going to take all of us there.
