In August 2018 the New York Times Magazine published a special issue exploring how humanity came to understand the causes of climate change and failed to act. They assigned George to take aerial photographs on every continent over the course of one year to document how we can see the effects of that inaction today. After over a hundred days of fieldwork in Greenland, Bangladesh, Switzerland, Mauritania, China, Brazil, Australia, and Antarctica, he created an extraordinary document of our challenged planet. The journey involved five helicopters, three crashed drones, one hurricane, and a sailboat ride across some of the wildest seas on earth. This visionary project was only made possible by an extraordinary commitment from the NYTM and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
