"This narrative by Nathaniel Rich is a work of history, addressing the
10-year period from 1979 to 1989: the decisive decade when humankind
first came to a broad understanding of the causes and dangers of climate
change. Complementing the text is a series of aerial photographs and
videos, all shot over the past year by George Steinmetz. With support
from the Pulitzer Center, this two-part article is based on 18 months of
reporting and well over a hundred interviews. It tracks the efforts of a
small group of American scientists, activists and politicians to raise
the alarm and stave off catastrophe."

until it's too late. Ultimately the grandchildren have to act to save
themselves. Via Christopher Lamke.
