Synopsis

Renowned photographer Sebastian Copeland highlights the dangers facing Antarctica in this beautiful and inspirational book.For more than fifty years research scientists have studied the frozen continent and its threatened and endangered creatures, including the chinstrap penguins, humpback whales and the albatross. This stark yet fragile icy realm may sound our last warning before the impending destruction of the environment. Sebastian Copeland, an award-winning photographer and environmental activist, witnessed the accelerated devastation of the Antarctic ice shelf while aboard a research vessel on behalf of Global Green. He uncovered both the awesome beauty of this mysterious continent and the alarming warnings made visible through his lens. Here he shares images of not only otherworldly glaciers, fields and fjords, but also clear signs of the massive inroads that climate change has made upon this magnificent continent."Antarctica" features Copeland's presentation of scientific data and personal insights about climate change including how and why the polar regions, both North and South, continue to melt at an increasingly rapid pace.

Commentary comes from Stephen Schneider, a Stanford professor and global warming expert, and Zac Goldsmith, "The Ecologist" magazine editor, and Mikhail Gorbachev and Leonardo DiCaprio add their visions for the challenging dilemma we face. Other contributors include Will Steger and David De Rothschild, a National Geographic "Emerging Explorer". "Antarctica" includes the DVD SOS: A Global Warning, an extensive, behind-the-scenes dialogue, shot on location, between Copeland and his coproducer, aerial artist John Quigley. The story of this production-at-sea includes a montage of live action and stunning photography set to a contemporary, original musical score.
