EverydayClimateChange (@everydayclimatechange) Instagram feed photographers share photographs made on 7 continents to present visual evidence that climate change doesn’t just happen “over there” but that climate change is also happening “right here.” Photographers come from the north, the south; the east and the west; and are as diverse as the cultures in which we were all raised. EverydayClimateChange presents the work of committed, enlightened photographers who share back stories, contextualizing not only the effects of climate change but also potential solutions to mitigate the effects of greenhouse gases on our world. The photographs peel back the visual layers and look more closely at the visual evidence.
