Antarctica's environment today is a microcosm of the wold environment's future: as endangered creatures, such as the chinstrap penguins, humpback whales, and albatrosses continue to face extinction, research scientists have concluded that this icy ecosystem serves as a final warning of impending environmental deterioration. Sebastian Copeland's photographs have captured both the incredible beauty of the continent and the devastation that climate changes have wreaked on it. His data, photographs, and conclusions — along with contributions from Will Steger, David De Rothschild, Stephen Schneider, Zac Goldsmith, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Leonardo DiCaprio — bring to readers with insight and urgency the momentous reality of the not so distant future with insight and urgency.
