Have you ever seen the rain?

People in the Midwest sure haven’t seen any rain in a while, and the economic consequences have already begun to ripple. Despite reports that climate scientists expect drought conditions to level off in the coming weeks, it’s a little too late for Midwestern farmers who have already seen major crop losses. We traveled to the regions of Iowa and Illinois to capture what people were seeing out there.

Extreme weather events such as the drought are likely to become more frequent and more severe due to climate change, according to recent scientific reports. We all feel the impacts of climate change, and we can all do something about it. We traveled to the top of the world this summer to document the impact of global warming in the Arctic and provide evidence to Shell Oil about what’s at stake in that pristine environment.

When we leave dirty energy like oil behind and start taking steps to clean, renewable energy, we can combat climate change and lessen its impact on all of us. Join us now in our fight to save the Arctic and provide a sustainable future for all of us.
