On the trails of the glaciers: how Patagonia has changed in the last 100 years

di

The video trailer by Fabiano Ventura documenting the effects of climate change on the glaciers in Patagonia.

Climate change. That danger, better still, that certainty communicated by the scientific community, that global warming due to human activities may become irreversible, seems to have not made any significant impact on our habits. Yet the consequences, if this phenomenon isn’t stopped or inverted, will be catastrophic. How can this inertia be explained in any other way as totally irresponsible? And why, when faced with such an immense danger, potentially definitive, do we not act?

Philosophers who specialise in environmental ethics are analysing these questions and searching for the answers and the changes that need to be made between man and the environment. What seems certain is that the vision, of man at the centre of the world, needs changing drastically. And although all this seems obvious, nothing is being done! And 2016 was the hottest year on record…

In the meantime those who go into the mountains cannot have avoided noticing that the glaciers, not only over here in the Alps but in most parts of the world, are retreating. This is what Italian environmental photographer Fabiano Ventura has been documenting for years as part of his project 'On the trails of the glaciers’. This trailer regards his expedition to Argentinia’s and Chile’s Patagonia. As always the comparison of the current standings with photos taken 100 years ago is impressive to say the least!
