Master photographer and Global Green leader, Sebastian Copeland, issues a global clarion call in his latest book Antarctica: A Call to Action, the sequel to his bestselling Antarctica: The Global Warning. Copeland’s awe-inspiring images of the frozen continent capture the beauty of the glaciers, biodiversity, and wild wide seas of the Drake. Along with exceptional new photographs, Antarctica: A Call To Action is a concise and visually compelling discussion about global warming with a hopeful and helpful new take: each of us can make a positive difference through small changes. With insightful commentary, the purity of undoctored photographs and "takeaways" provide readers with simple lifestyle changes to help preserve Antarctica’s fragile ecosystem. A highly accessible and hopeful book, Antarctica: A Call to Action will inspire everyone to save this magnificent continent for future generations. Simple changes to save Antarctica, and the planet: WASH COLD — Washing laundry in cold instead of warm water once a week saves 250 pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere per year. DRIVE LESS — Five miles less driving per week eliminates 900 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. SHOWERS — Taking showers instead of baths eliminates 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per year.
