If anything, the last few years of unusual weather has shown us that global warming is here to stay and this is no aberration but a new norm. No one knows this better than local photographer/journalist/activist Subhankar Banerjee, who has spent years working in the field since his initial forays documenting the terrain for the Smithsonian. In this special feature, our writer Janet Brown talks to Banerjee about the future of the Arctic, the planet, and what can be done about it. Brown also reviews an important new book of essays on the subject and covers a revealing show entitled “Vanishing Ice” at the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham.
