As our global population increases exponentially, the effects of our actions are changing the environment. With global warming and the melting polar icecaps contributing to rising ocean levels, we are literally and figuratively losing ground. Krause combines images chosen from more than a decade of her work with text selected from the publications of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to make a plea for awareness of our role as stewards of the environment.
