Del Mar Global Trust This is Climate Change

 - November 5, 2012 - 

On display at Reagan National Airport, Washington D.C. and LaGuardia Airport, New York.

Climate Change is real and we are already feeling its consequences. This new photo display demonstrates two impacts of climate change: drought and flooding.

This summer the US experienced one of its most severe droughts in recorded history. As of October 2, 2012, the US Drought Monitor observed that over 70% of the US was experiencing either “moderate to exceptional” or “exceptional” (the most severe) drought. Drought is not only a concern for environmentalists, it puts farmers out of business, hurts local economies, and makes food prices more expensive for everyone.

Parts of the coastal Northeast were recently devastated by Superstorm Sandy (late October 2012). A truly exceptional storm, Sandy claimed over 110 human deaths. Sandy supports the trend of increasing severe weather affecting the US, which is characteristic of climate change.

 - September 12, 2011 - 

We are pleased to announce the installation of our first public photo display at Reagan National Airport, in Washington, DC.

Located in our nation’s capitol, Reagan National Airport hosts an average of 1.5 million government, business and tourist passengers each month.

 

The display documents the retreat of the Mendenhall Glacier near Juneau, Alaska.  The glacier terminus has retreated by more than 580 meters (about 1900 feet) since 1946 (Juneau Icefield Research Program).

The before-and-after photos of the Mendenhall Glacier may be viewed on Level 1, Terminal 3 at Reagan National Airport through August 2012.
