For a long time -- the first 15 years that we knew about global warming and did nothing -- there were no pictures. That was one of the reasons for inaction.
Climate change was still "theoretical," the word that people in power use to dismiss anything for which pictures do not exist. It is the reason we don't see shots of coffins coming back from Iraq; it's the reason the only prison abuse we really know about was at Abu Ghraib. Without pictures, no uproar; not in a visual age.
But now the pictures have started to come, and they will not cease. Read full article »

Eco Portfolio 1Last Updated on 2008-09-19 01:38:05Photographs of our Earth from the collection of Gary Braasch. I am a photojournalist who has been wandering in and learning about the natural world for more than 30 years. The planet we live on is beyond beautiful and incredibly intricate in its interconnections. However, humans in their numbers and technical power are damaging and undoing the natural links that keep the planet --- and all of us -- healthy. See the information at Earth Portal and the portal for World Global Warming. Thank you.

Pushing the Boundaries of Life: Temperate Zone Last Updated on 2008-09-08 00:00:00
Alpine meadow and fell-field ecosystems are changing under atmospheric warming. On this site at 3000 meters in the Austrian Alps, Botanist Harald Pauli and researchers are finding plantspecies increasing and decreasing at different rates over a 10 year period. Essentially, the familiar alpine wildflower fields are being fragmented and rearranged. This is especially dangerous for plants forced to move upwards where there is
just rock and ice, says Pauli. "We are running into a really serious loss of biodiversity." The 380 sites here were established in 1994 by Georg Grabherr, Pauli and others at the University of Vienna. This alpine research idea has expanded world wide into GLORIA - the "Global Observation Research Initiative in Alpine Environments."
The glaciers behind the scientists are an even more visible sign of global warming, and have... More »
