Breakthroughs Spring 2013
Images of melting glaciers would not have been an engaging way to illustrate what these scientists had to say about climate change. The goal of the issue was to focus on the resource economics perspective, which speaks not to the biology of climate change, but rather to how soaring temperatures will impact the global economy the way we live. As it happened, all three featured faculty members had young families, so with their generous consent, we used images of their kids to show their highly personal stakes in their caveats about the future. Feature 2 took a public-health perspective on climate change, and other spots showed off the college's diverse topics.
