EverydayClimateChange is a collective of photographers who share visual evidence of climate change from all 7 continents to share the visual evidence of climate change highlighting that “it doesn’t just happen “over there” but that climate change is also happening “right here”.  These photographers document not only the effects of climate change but also potential solutions to mitigate the effects of global warming on our world.”

Tradition and change for the Zulu people of South Africa, in 1998.  Sugar cane fields near Melmoth are cut down and burned off after the harvest.  The Zulus are South Africa's most populous nation, with nearly 10 million of the country's 33 million blacks. They are also its most martial tribe: In the past twenty years as many as 20,000 Zulus have died in factional fighting. Today, the tribe is trapped in apartheid's legacy of violence and poverty.
