Here Sebastian talks about perceptions on climate, his cousin Orlando and the new book.
Billy Zane speaks eloquently about climate change perceptions and gives a nod:
Peter Mensah shares nice words and why he cares:
Representing ten years of travel in the Arctic spanning Greenland, Alaska, Northern Canada and Norway, not to speak of the Arctic sea ice on the way to the North Pole, Arctica: The Vanishing North is a visual testament of the far north. Contributors include Sir Richard Branson, who penned the foreword, Mayor Eric Garcetti, Dr. Andrew Weaver, Dr. Ted Scambos both IPCC lead writers, Sheila Watt Cloutier (Inuit Advocate) and Børge Ousland (Norwegian explorer).
Coming at a whopping 7.9 pounds, this volume was made carbon neutral by Climate Partners. Says Sebastian: “I am very proud of this book. It is my most accomplished work. It is a visual tour of a part of the world that hardly anyone has ever witnessed”.
The book is released globally by the TeNeues Publishing, and will be available in international markets from Fall 2015.
