Warm Waters is a 4 year-long documentary journey across the Pacific Ocean, from Northern Alaska to the remote outposts of New Zealand throughout Oceania to document the devastating effects of global warming. The journey started in 2013 in Papua New Guinea, where Russian/Portugues...e photographer Vlad Sokhin documented illegal logging and deforestation for the Global Mail (Australia). In 2014 he covered the rise of sea levels, coastal erosion and the effects of El Nino in Papua New Guinea, Kiribati, Nauru, the Marshall Islands and Niue. In 2015 and 2016, he extensively covered tropical cyclones aftermaths across Pacific island nations and delved deeper into documenting struggles of the affected communities, their resilience and adaptation to the realities of global warming. This book also looks at other environmental issues our planet is facing such as climate migrants and their resettlement, permafrost melting, coral bleaching, and green energy. Warm Waters shows the evidence of fight, adaptation, and hope of remote island and coastal communities. This book takes you right into the lives of Inupiat and Yupik people in Alaska, and to the towns and villages that are being destroyed by the sea and coastal erosion on the Russian peninsula Kamchatka. You will see how scientists work in the field, studying the effects of climate change, and how the people of the Pacific region, affected by extreme weather conditions, are trying to survive and build up again their lives after catastrophic events have ruined their land and houses. The book though not only shows tragedy; it shows the beauty of our planet, communities living in harmony with nature, and people that are tirelessly working to protect their fragile shores from the biggest environmental threat ever that they are facing.
