Journey to the Sinking Lands

A witness to the world's first evacuation of an entire people due to climate change

Wrong again…

… yep, turns out the show must go on. In fact, the show is going international (well, Scotland), as I’ve just been invited to give a small-but-perfectly-formed lecture for the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.

I’ve only got the dates so far (below) but more details as I get ‘em.

Monday 11th October – Inverness
Tuesday 12th October – Perth
Wednesday 13th October – Stirling

Hello Dan Box,

I’m hoping that this message will reach you–I had sent you a message through your Flickr account, but it may be that you haven’t accessed that in awhile.

I am writing to inquire about possibly obtaining one of your photographs, and permission to use it in an exhibit on climate change that we are in the midst of creating right now. The exhibit, “Bill Nye’s Climate Lab,” will open on November 20th here at Chabot Space & Science Center. We have a companion website up right now: http://www.billsclimatelab.org.

The picture I am looking for is one showing people of the Carteret islands depicting some aspect of their evacuation(s). Two specific images I’ve looked at in your collections are http://www.theecologist.org/investigations/climate_change/293674/the_first_climate_evacuation_what_have_we_learned.html, or http://www.flickr.com/photos/35080972@N07/3462205440/in/photostream/.

Please let me know if you would be willing to grant permission to use, and a high-resolution version of, either of these pictures–or a suitable alternate.

Thanks very much.
Ben Burress, Chabot Space & Science Center
