#EverydayClimateChange

As the weather rages outside, the wind blows, snow falls and then the sunshine comes back out, we can’t but help what is happening to the climate these days. Should we carry an umbrella, or wear a t-shirt? It’s hard to know on a daily basis anymore. It’s hard to know on an every-few-minutes basis anymore…

On January 3rd, as we all contemplated the end of the holidays, good news and cheer was to be found in figures and data which were released proving that 2014 had been a “massive year” for wind and solar power here in Scotland, with enough wind power generated in six of the months last year to power more than 100% of Scottish homes. You can read many more stunning statistics and good news here on the WWF Scotland website.

Neatly coinciding with this positive news a new Instagram feed was started, on January 1st, taking a look at climate change.  @EverydayClimateChange, started by James Whitlow Delano in Tokyo, and involving a total 37 photographers on 5 continents, aims to bring attention to the perils we face through climate change, the causes of it, and the effect it has on our fragile planet. Document Scotland’s Jeremy Sutton-Hibbert is one of the contributing photographers who will be posting images to the feed, which since it’s launch two weeks ago has already amassed a following of 2,500 regular viewers. Jeremy aims to post work from his assignments covering different environmental topics for Greenpeace, and also images from Scotland as our country leads the way forward with renewable energy and cutting the all harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

Speaking on Inside Climate News, photographer Ed Kashi, a contributor to National Geographic Magazine, said of the new project, “Climate change is such a loaded term, and the public dialogue is so disingenuous, so off the mark from the conversation we need to be having. Whether this project makes someone think about this more or spurs action, both are mini-victories that add up to systemic change. That’s what we need.”

Please take a look at the @EverydayClimateChange and if you’re on Instagram, please show your support and follow it to see stories from around the world by eminent photographers such as Paula Bronstein of Getty Images, Ed Kashi and Ron Haviv of VII photo agency, many from our friends at Panos Photos and many more. Many thanks.
