""The power of Gary Braasch's personal witness to the climate crisis makes this essential reading for every citizen.""⿿Al Gore ⿿Earth under Fire is an important work documenting climate change. With an accessible text and startling photographs, it takes the reader on a world tour of the human effect on our climate.⿝⿿Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. ""Braasch's descriptions and photographs of how climate change is unraveling ecosystems and human lives make real and vivid what for too many remains speculative and abstract. Each deeply researched story⿿the rising suicide rate in a melting Inuit village, fields of European butterflies killed by a false spring, coastal houses falling into the sea in North Carolina⿿becomes a memorable character in a rapidly unfolding drama that threatens to engulf us all.""⿿Amory B. Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute ""There are scant books equal to the task of spelling out the greatest challenge in human history-global climate change. Rarer still is an author who can both write and photograph it, seamlessly marrying text and images. Earth under Fire is that rare book.""⿿Paul Hawken, author of Blessed Unrest and The Ecology of Commerce ""This is a well-written description of the effects of human-driven climate change on our all-too-vulnerable planet. The pictures give a marvelously direct account of what is happening almost before our eyes.""⿿Sir Crispin Tickell, former British Ambassador to the United Nations ""Global warming has found its Baedeker in Gary Braasch. Braasch has traveled all over our changing world and recorded in word and photograph what's going on. We all need to see what he saw, and Earth under Fire does a beautiful job of that.""⿿James Gustave Speth, author of Red Sky at Morning: America and the Crisis of the Global Environment
