Gary Braasch’s keystone project since 2000 has been World View of Global Warming, which is the original dedicated photo documentation of the effects of rapid climate change. Gary was the first photojournalist who journeyed extensively, including to China, Australia, Tuvalu, Antarctica, the Arctic and the great mountains of the world, documenting climate science and the effects of change. This work continues into its second decade, with new emphasis on rephotographing rapid changes and on the solutions which will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Gary’s comprehensive book Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World (University of California Press) was first published in 2007 and has been updated in a paperback edition and made into an e-book (2009-2010). Praise for this book has come from Al Gore, members of the Nobel Prize winning scientific community of the world, Vanity Fair, Nature, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Bill McKibben and Paul Hawken.
