The Visual Evidence of Climate Change

The Visual Evidence of Climate Change

Today, there is overwhelming evidence that climate change is a growing danger to our world.

Temperatures are rising, sea levels are increasing, ice mass is being depleted, and extreme weather events are devastating our areas. And much of this can be linked to human activity.  

At a time when people debate the facts, it’s photographers who are helping prove what’s really happening to our planet.

Here, four photographers —Julie Dermansky,  Jashim SalamCaroline Bennett, and Kike Calvo —  share what they’ve documented firsthand: destructive storms in the South, tidal flooding in Bangladesh, the effects of oil drilling in the Amazon, and the melting Arctic. We’re proud to support photographers like these so they can share the stories of our world.

After all, pictures don’t lie.

    Wow! I’ve been a photographer for decades and know well that pictures do lie! Especially when in the context of the words surrounding them. That said, take a look at “climate change” in the context of hundreds or thousands of years. Looking at it in the short term yields no valid scientific conclusions. This year is a big hurricane year in and around the U.S. The previous 12 were not. This all means nothing. Enough about that! Surprised to see PhotoShelter going political. Hadn’t noticed it in the past.
