Photographer Tom Hegen captured amazing images of the climate change effects in Greenland

Tom Hegen is a photographer and designer based in Munich, Germany, focused on aerial photography projects that reveals the impact of human presence on earth. In The Two Celsius Degree Series, Hegen registered impressive aerial photos of the melting polar ice in Greenland (Denmark), caused by the increase of the planet’s temperature.

“Global sea level rise will be one of the major environmental challenges of the 21st Century. One of the leading causes of sea level rise is the melting of ice from glaciers and ice sheets. The Greenland ice sheet alone contains enough water to raise global sea levels by more than 7 meters. The Arctic is the fastest warming place on this planet, providing the first indication of how climate change is having an impact. Below two degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels is the agreed goal signed by 197 countries at the Paris climate agreement in 2015 to limit global warming to avoid disastrous consequences of climate change.” – Tom Hegen.
