On Thin Ice Part 1 of 4

NBC Bay Area Meteorologist Rob Mayeda travels to the glaciers of Alaska to share an up-close look at climate change and how it's affecting the Bay Area. Not only is climate change real in Alaska, you'll find that its happening very quickly. Nowhere else on the planet will you find temperatures trending this much warmer than average in the last 30 years. In this segment, we take you directly to Mendenhall Glacier via helicopter to get a up close view of Summer glacier melting underway. Even a brief walk across the rapidly changing icy surface was one that needed to be taken very carefully with many hazards along the way.
