The show

The images of National Geographic, selected over a period of three decades precisely to demonstrate the unstoppable progression of climate change, are the result of the work of great masters, among whom it is necessary to remember, at least: the Canadian Paul Nicklen, awarded for five times to World Press Photo. Nature reportage; Pulitzer Prize winner Melissa Farlow; the documentary maker Pete McBride who, in the last twenty years, has made reports for National Geographic from 65 countries, from Everest to the Antarctic; the American James Balog who, with his Extreme Ice Survey project, told in the film Chasing Ice ", has documented, with visual evidence through more than a million shots, the unstoppable phenomenon of the melting of perennial ice; Gerd Ludwig, author, since 1991, of dozens of services for National Geographic; Joel Sartore, one of the greatest living photographers, specialized in the representation of the animal world.

In the Neapolitan stage of "Understanding climate change - Experience exhibition", an exhibition already presented in March 2019 at the Natural History Museum in Milan, the installations will be enriched with new images, with a focus on plastic pollution and uncontrolled fires due to heating global. On display, there will be a space of environmental breaking news, with a corner constantly updated on the main news relevant to the climate changes taking place in the world. The visit will thus guide the public to discover the profound transformations caused by global warming: from the melting of perennial ice to extreme weather phenomena (unprecedented heat waves and increase in storms and hurricanes), from the intensification of dry periods the rise in sea level of 3.4 millimeters per year. The power of the photographic image will emphasize the scientific evidence of the data: the temperature of the Earth has increased by more than one degree Celsius in the last century; 2018 was the fourth hottest year in history globally and the first hottest year in Italy, France and Switzerland; July 2019 was the hottest month ever (+0.95 degrees above the 20th century average, given the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminatration).
