IMPACT: The Effect of Climate Change on Coastlines
Introduction by Bill McKibben
Birkhauser, Basel 2020
The rise in sea level is a visible and remorseless indicator of global warming, the consequences of which can be experienced worldwide – in contrast to other effects of the climate crisis that are not yet noticeable at a global scale.
The book illustrates, in an impressive way, the ecological, commercial, and social impact associated with the rise in sea levels, drawing examples from Maine to Texas along the East Coast and Gulf of Mexico: MacLean documented this region from his Cessna airplane between 2005 and 2018 using large-format aerial photography. The pictures illustrate the different conditions of the areas documented before and after major weather events, providing evidence of how dramatically geography and landscape are altered by climate change.
