Unbiased Photographers Tackle Global Warming

A sampling of recent photographs from the wire services:

A man is seen walking with a dog along a dry cracked reservoir bed in Alcora, eastern Spain in this May 20, 2005 file photo. Climate change in Europe’s Mediterranean region will sap electric power generation, reverse long-standing tourism trends, raise sea levels in coastal regions and leave millions of people with water shortages, scientists said Tuesday, April 10, 2007.

Climate change in Europe’s Mediterranean region will sap electric power generation, reverse long-standing tourism trends, raise sea levels in coastal regions and leave millions of people with water shortages, scientists said Tuesday, April 10, 2007.

A farmer digs a drain on a dried-up pond on the outskirts of Kunming, capital of southwestern China’s Yunnan province March 6, 2007. Food shortages, water scarcity, heatwaves, floods and migration of millions of people will occur across Asia as a result of climate change, Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the U.N. climate panel, said on Tuesday.

The glacier field is seen from the route to the North Ridge of K2 in the Xinjiang Province of China during the summer of 2000. Mountaineers are bringing back firsthand accounts of vanishing glaciers, melting ice routes, crumbling rock formations and flood-prone lakes where glaciers once rose. The observations are transforming a growing number of alpine and ice climbers, some of whom have scientific training, into eyewitnesses of global warming.

What media bias?
