I was fortunate to spend a few weeks recently with the director of Chasing Ice, Jeff Orlowski.



I'm going to plug Chasing Ice because it's an amazing film. Jeff along with EIS (http://extremeicesurvey.org/) filmed glaciers for a few years. Because Climate change is banned we can't discuss the movie's implications, but I'll rather suffice to say the images and film captured of the glaciers receding and calving is remarkable. I encourage everyone to go out and see it. It's won tons of film festival awards.

I see knee replacement in his future - as well as a lot of pain.

Interesting endeavor. Sure beats an office job.

yep. If you can't walk without pain,life kind of sucks. No knee replacement for me.
I have met too many unhappy patients. Some have had to to undergo several surgeries.

Not in the Film, but he did take an enormous amount while we were in Antarctica. Not sure what his plans are for the footage. He asked me not to tell anyone about his new project, but I'll suffice to say it has to do with scuba diving and something off the coast off north east Australia.

Just left the Franz Josef glacier in NZ. In 5 years it won't be a tourist attraction. It's nearly vanished from the side of the mountain. Only way to see it soon will be by helicopter.
