Contents Notes
"In 1999, photojournalist Gary Braasch began a journey around the world to observe and document environmental changes resulting from the warming of our planet. In this book, he brings us along to witness firsthand what he saw as he crossed both the Antarctic and Arctic Circles, trekked above 15,000 feet in the Andes, dove on damaged coral reefs, and followed scientists into the field on four continents." "Alongside Braasch's words and images, essays by eminent scientists discuss the impacts of climate change on the oceans, biodiversity, fresh water, mountain cultures, plants and animals, and our health. Earth Under Fire offers an account of how we can reduce our dependence on fossil fuel - and lesson the consequences of that dependence - using technologies, energy sources, and efficiencies already on hand."--Jacket.
