"Whomever said that a picture is worth 1,000 words vastly underestimated the value of powerful photographs. The photos in this book left me awash in emotions of love, and loss - and renewed my determination to protect the extraordinary gifts we have been given."
-Edward Maibach, Director, George Mason University Center for Climate Change Communication"These arresting photographs are the kind that dreams are made on, and show us viscerally just how much we stand to lose. We must act, else images like these will become for our descendants vivid but distant reminders of what we once treasured in nature, and how we ruined it."
-Kerry Emanuel, Professor of Atmospheric Science, MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA"A feast of beauty and a source of outrage. This book belongs on your coffee table, in your hands, and in your heart as we demand action to protect this gorgeous, yet fragile planet we call home."
-Anthony Leiserowitz, Yale Center for Environmental Communication"Some of the world's best nature photographers show you?earth's awesome beauty and how our unsustainable production of food, energy and materials is putting it under threat. This book presents a vivid snapshot of the crossroads humanity now faces, and will define the twenty-first century."
-Boyan Slat, CEO and Founder, The Ocean Cleanup"Spectacular, inspiring - images of what we must fight for, and against."
