Pleasant Ridge, MI – Long-time resident of Pleasant Ridge and professor of photography at the College for Creative Studies, John Ganis, will present his thought provoking photographic book surveying areas of the Atlantic and Gulf coasts threatened by rising sea levels as a consequence of global warming. Pioneering climate researcher, James Hansen contributed an essay to the book discussing his findings that a global temperature increase of 2 degrees Jacks AdCelsius above pre-industrial levels will lead to an extreme rise in sea levels in many coastal areas. Well-known author and environmentalist, Bill McKibben has said: “The coasts we’ve always known are shifting before our eyes. John Ganis’s fine book helps us with the job of paying witness; may it spur us to the job of preventing further damage.”

Monday, November 21st, 7 pm Pleasant Ridge Community Center 4 Ridge Road, Pleasant Ridge.

Pleasant Ridge Environmental Committee with John Ganis present: “America’s Endangered Coasts: Photographs from Texas to Maine”
