Images From a Warming Planet

Project Creator

Thirteen years ago I set out on an epic journey, to document the impacts of climate change on every continent on the planet, the only living person to have done so. I could not have known then how this would change my life. This momentous project has taken me to over thirty countries, from 200 feet below sea level, to 18,000 above, in the High Andes, from the Antarctic to within 400 miles of the North Pole. At the end of my travels I have probably seen more impacts of climate change than any other living human being. Ever increasing extreme weather, and collapsing life support systems around the planet are the result of our actions. We need to take immediate and serious action to avert the worst consequences. There is hope, the world is increasingly turning away from fossil fuels and embracing renewable energy.
The next step is to print 500 of the best photographs in an art photographic book entitled “Images from a Warming Planet”. Jonathon Porritt has kindly written the foreword for the book, which I plan to self publish. To this end I have launched a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter to raise the vital funds to enable me to print the book. I truly believe that this book will have a real impact on alerting the world to what is already happening out there as a result of climate change, and importantly, what we can all do to avert its worst impacts.
If you could support this campaign by donating I would be truly grateful, no sum is too small. In addition if you could spread the message to family and friends who may be interested and share on social media, that would be fantastic. To support please go to
The campaign runs for just 30 days. People’s pledged money will only be taken If the target of £50,000 is reached.
Thanks for considering supporting this. My hope is that this project may prevent more people suffering the future horrendous consequences of climate change.
With eternal thanks and best wishes
