Vanishing Ice

There is a wonderful interactive article on the National Geographic website for June. Explore global warming and the predicted effects on many of the mammals that live in Arctic.

View the photograph gallery.

The photographs here represent a decade's work. They embody my love of ice, and of the blue-white world it nourishes. The photos also carry a message, one that I understood with sudden clarity that May day as I watched amphipods flit along the ice and heard the clicks and squeaks of approaching whales: If global temperatures continue rising, the ice will likely disappear. An Arctic without ice would be like a garden without soil. [Text and photographs by Paul Nicklen]

Hi,

I found your ‘blog’ while browsing the web and I would like to introduce you to our project, dedicated to fighting climate change and poverty, called Tree-Nation. Via our website you can plant trees for yourself or offer them to someone else. The trees are being planted in a virtual map on our website and in our real plantation in Niger. Eventually our goal is to plant 8 million trees in Africa in the shape of a huge heart. Have a look at our website to see whether you like the project and if you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

Many thanks!
