A photograph of the Solheim Glacier in Iceland taken in 2006 by photographer James Balog is pictured in this publicity photograph released to Reuters November 16, 2012. A red line indicates the size of the glacier. A comparison photo taken in 2009 shows the disappearance of most of the glacier. Six years after the documentary ''An Inconvenient Truth,'' a new film ''Chasing Ice'' goes beyond the data and the diagrams to document the disappearance of the world's glaciers with time-lapse photography.
