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 Salam, Caroline 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.
