The change in climate transcends our political boundaries. It affects people of every walk of life, all the creatures of the world. It will change the weather, in some cases forcing people to abandon their homes due to desertification. Ecosystems will change, cultures will change, and many will be lost.
By showcasing the lives of people and creatures all over the world, we can raise awareness of the global nature of climate change. We can raise appreciation of what we have, in the hopes that more will be enticed into saving it.
By capturing these places and people as the climate changes, it will be possible to show the progress of how climate change is affecting them, and how life is responding to changes like the ocean acidification, salt water intrusion into ground water, rising tides, and intensfiied weather along with shifts in rainfall.
