AAAS exhibit featuring photographs of climate change opens Nov. 18
Date:11/11/2009

As world leaders prepare for the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in early December, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will open a new exhibit with striking photos of climate change around the world. A companion display shows what some school children are doing to address the issue.

Twenty-one large-scale photographs of climate change effects will be on display Wednesday, November 18 until Monday, March 15 at the AAAS Gallery. The gallery is free and open to the public.

The photos are from the book "Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World," by environmental photojournalist Gary Braasch. The photos illustrate the effects rapid climate change has had around the world. In one photo from Alaska, an eroding cliff causes a seaside dwelling to tumble into the Bering Sea. In another photo, a polar bear strolls along a sandy, snow- and ice-free beach on Cooper Island, Alaska in the Arctic Ocean.

Other photographs in the exhibit show people who already are feeling the effects of a warming atmosphere, such as dozens of Bangladeshi villagers clustered on a tiny, muddy island in the delta of the Brahmaputra and Ganges rivers. And three girls who are playing soccer on a dried up rice field in a rural town north of Hong Kong.

Photo captions explain where each photo was taken and how climate change affects that region.

The exhibit is part of the AAAS Art of Science and Technology Program, established in 1985 to showcase art about science, art by scientists, or art that employs a new or original technology or technique.

"AAAS is pleased to sponsor this exhibit, because it truly meets our goals of serving and engaging society of all ages in one of the most critical science issues today," said Virginia Stern, director of the Art of Science and Technology program.
