Opening in November and running through March 2010, the American Association for the Advancement of Science will feature an entire exhibit on the climate crisis as it affects people and places around the globe. The exhibit, titled, "Climate Change in Our World," will be the only exhibit on climate and energy in Washington, DC during the Senate's debate on climate change, prior to Copenhagen. The exhibit features not just photographs of the changing climate but also information on the solutions and actions that people are taking. The 5 foot tall photographs, combined with films, and written documentary of climate change all come together to teach, engage and inspire vistors. The Earth Under Fire photographs featured in the exhibit are from the same titled book written by Gary Braasch.
Films by Lynne Cherry, "How We Know About Our Changing Climate" and "Young Voices on Climate Change" will add to the exhibit through visual displays of how we know what we know, and what we can do about it. Creators of the exhibit hope to inspire students, visitors, congressmen/women, to see shocking images of what is actually happening thanks to climate change. The exhibit opens just one month before the UN Climate Summit in Copenhagen where it is hoped that an agreement can be reached
School groups can contact the AAAS museum to schedule specific tours. The exhibit opens November 10, 2009 and is open daily from 8am to 6pm and by appointment on Satuday. :Earth Under Fire ExhibitMore on Climate Change ExhibitsPhoto Exhibit Shows Impact of Climate Change on Peruvian LivesThe American Museum of Natural History Tackles Climate ChangeGoing Green on Campus: An Inspired Student Working to Inspire OthersNYC Photo Exhibit at United Nations: Climate Change, Poverty and Hope for Avoiding the Sixth Great Extinction
