Giving Climate Change a Human Face

Today, 'The Age' has published an article about photographer, Rodney Dekker who previously used to work as an environmental scientist for state and federal government agencies in Australia. The article documents his exhibition of photographs which capture the human impacts of climate change, like that of rice farmer, Badol from Bangladesh.

Badol lost nine of his relatives, including his wife during the devasting Cyclone Sidr, that hit Bangladesh in 2007. The cyclone left 3300 people dead and 2 million homeless.

With the rise of temperatures due to climate change, cyclones are expected to increase in strength and longevity.
