By Andrew Revkin, The New York Times. For GSS Climate Change chapter 4. Excerpt: Gary Braasch was a gifted photographer passionately devoted to chronicling climate change. ...He was there, of course, to continue building the globe-spanning photographic record http://braaschphotography.com/ he had been creating since he latched onto global warming as his prime subject in the late 1990s. (Watch a 2008 presentation by Braasch and the climate scientist Stephen H. Schneider to get a feel for his work and views.) ... Lynne Cherry, an author, illustrator and filmmaker who collaborated many times with Braasch, particularly notably in my favorite book on climate change for younger readers, “How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate.”  ...Gary aggregated the scientific research, accompanied by his rich photographs, into one of the first photographic books on climate change, “Earth Under Fire: How Global Warming is Changing the World,”  and launched a website, “World View of Global Warming.” ...in 2009, Gary and I [Lynn Cherry] founded Young Voices on Climate Change to champion youth solutions to the climate crisis through the “Young Voices for the Planet” film series. ...See also: interview “Images of Climate Change: Hope & Progress”  (Gary Braasch) ...  http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2016/03/08/too-soon-gone-gary-braasch-visual-chronicler-of-climate-change/
