CLIMATE CHANGE IN OUR WORLD: Photographs by Gary Braasch

We have made the world of today. Human population growth, energy use, agricultural methods, and land development have all had a measurable effect on our climate. Our activities have raised the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to its highest level in millions of years. The average temperature is climbing out of the range in which living species evolved and is now affecting sea level, ocean acidity, and water availability. Melting ice caps and glaciers, as well as weather extremes, have also resulted from this phenomenon. Although we are already experiencing climate change, we have many options to moderate it and limit its effects, with prompt action curtailing further drastic consequences.
View the works of environmental photojournalist Gary Braasch to observe how climate change is altering our planet. You’ll also see how humans are working to slow these changes through alternative energy use and conservation.
