Thanks to the publishers and editors of magazines, books and websites who have paid publication fees.

I have been helped by many hundreds of scientists, leaders and people affected by and trying to reduce climate change in many countries around the planet. To them, heartfelt thanks. Many of them are mentioned in individual pages and photo-stories in this website.

I am no less grateful to many others, including fellow photographers, journalists and friends, whose research and information have been very helpful and who will be crucial to World View of Global Warming in the coming years.

Please see Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World for a complete list of those who made that book possible.

Photographs from the World View of Global Warming are available for license to publications needing science photography, environmental groups and agencies, and other uses. Stock photography and assignments available.
