The Gagosian Gallery in Berverly Hills teamed up with Sebastian for a special showing of his polar images to benefit the environmental non-profit the NRDC.

Joel Reynolds, Western director of the NRDC, gave a short talk about the organization’s work, and Sebastian, a long time board member of the NGO Global Green USA  shared his experiences shooting in the polar regions, and their significance to the health of the planet.

400 PPM

May 13, 2013 5:40pm

400. That is the symbolic milestone of concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere in parts per million. It is increasing at the rate of 2.5 PPM per year and seems to accelerate.

If you wonder what it means, this is the most direct threat to humanity and most living species that have thrived on this planet for the last 65 million years.
We cannot grow in perpetuity in a finite environment. It is time to have less and do more, and do more intelligently with what we have at our disposal.
