Images from a Warming Planet
Our world is warming and as it warms billions face the consequences. Over 13 years Ashley Cooper has visited exotic and familiar landscapes to capture the impact of climate change. In over 500 photos he shows how we are changing the world around us and leaving a trail of devastation. Extraordinary images present scenes that Cooper describes with accuracy and passion. Each section is designed to tell a story, albeit one that may have an unhappy ending. The opening chapter chronicles our love affair with fossil fuels from extraction to use, and a separate chapter focuses on the Canadian Tar Sands. Then we cascade through communities and landscapes irreparably harmed by global warming.The book ends with an illustration of the efforts we have to make to avert greater ruin. This visually stunning book shows in unprecedented detail the future we can all expect if we continue to pollute and heat our planet. 411 pages.
