CHESAPEAKE BAY – ENDANGERED LANDSCAPE
PHOTOGRAPHS by LEE GOODWIN
The Chesapeake Bay is on the front line of climate change. The combination of rising sea levels and subsiding land means that the landscape we see today may not be there for our children, or even for ourselves in the coming decades. Scientists predict that sea levels will rise one to three feet by 2060, and flooding will worsen in the interim. At the same time, many national leaders deny the existence of the problem, and refuse to take the difficult steps to mitigate its effects. This exhibit features landscape photographs of the places where land and water meet in this most vulnerable landscape, in an effort to show what we stand to lose if we do not work harder to address climate change.
