Inspirational Links (climate, art and other considerations)
Beautiful black and white Photo-portraits of concerned scientists, by Nick Bowers, with short fascinating "concerns" interviews.
For the love of: Climate Coalition campaign page. Similar to the climate reality drive, request for video and signing up, has a nice intro clip with climate connections.
What I love/Climate Reality Project: making climate change personal, demonstrating connections. The intro clip Climate: the way forward about carbon taxing. The Climate Reality Project also takes part in other campaigns such as the "Ask Why? Why Not?" campaign, set up around the UN climate summit.
Artists And Climate Change is a small yet professional effort to compile art and climate links, and includes a climate change photography page.
Climate Change Cafe also shares some inspiring photography and subjects on its pages.
And of course established organisations like the WWF, nationalgeographic all have their inspirational pages and articles
