Photojournalist and nature photographer Gary Braasch has been crossing the globe to document the immediate, real-world effects of climate change. He tells Nikon Net, "This was not a very well covered issue when I started six years ago. ... Even for people who believed in global warming and understood how bad it was, the pictures were a compelling message that it was really happening, not in the future, but right now." The bittersweet fruits of Braasch's labor will soon be published as a book called Earth Under Fire, but some of the work can already be seen on a website he maintains called World View of Global Warming.
