Endings

Climate change and melting ice fields are affecting the flow of the Gulf Stream, which brings warm water from the Gulf of Mexico across the Atlantic to the UK in the cold north. The ends of the Gulf Stream connect the two places where I have family roots.  The ultimate climate tipping point is in the future and we aren’t yet feeling its impact. How do we deal with an inevitable problem so far in the future? I look at colliding man-made and natural landscapes in the north and the south. 2009-2011
