AMERICA'S ENDANGERED COASTS: PHOTOGRAPHS FROM TEXAS TO MAINE. John Ganis. George F. Thompson Publishing, Staunton, 2016. 232 pp. 25 x 33 cm. ISBN 9781938086434 In English.
Due date: October 2016. Publisher's description: America's Endangered Coasts: Photographs from Texas to Maine is a pioneering and thought-provoking photographic survey of coastal areas of the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts of the United States that are already threatened by a rising sea. Using a topographic aesthetic that combines straightforward, highly detailed color photographs with GPS locations and elevations above sea level for each site, this book photographically responds to low-lying areas that are frequently over-developed and vulnerable to high tides and storms such as Hurricanes Katrina, Irene, and Sandy. This book contains 175 color photographs and two essays, one by Liz Wells, a prominent British writer who offers a photo/art perspective of the work, and one by Dr. James E. Hansen, based on his prophetic scientific understandings of the climate-change crisis and some ways to address it. Current scientific projections conclusively show that the future of civilization along the world's coasts is at stake due to the climate-change crisis. According to the latest conservative projections, Earth's sea levels will rise by no less than three to four feet within a century and very possibly much more.
