"In my view, climate change is the most
severe problem that we are facing today -- more serious even than the threat of terrorism."
With this warning to an international science meeting in February 2004,
David A. King, Chief Scientific Advisor to the British Government, brought the issue of global warming into sharp focus.
The World View of Global Warming project is documenting this change through
science photography from the Arctic to Antarctica, from glaciers to the oceans, across all climate zones. Rapid climate
change and its effects is fast becoming one of the prime events of the 21st century. It is real and it is accelerating across
the globe. As the effects of this change combine with overpopulation and weather crises, climate disruptions will affect
more people than does war.
