Over free pdf For more than twenty years, Alex MacLean's aerial photographs have captured the evolution of the American landscape and the complex relationship between its natural and constructed environments. "Over: American Culture and Climate Change" is an ambitious and visually breathtaking catalogue of the extraordinary patterns and profound physical consequences brought about by natural processes and human intervention.Divided into sections on topics including automobile dependency, water consumption and urbanization, MacLean's powerful photographs and insightful text make it clear that maintenance of the current American lifestyle is incompatible with a planet of diminishing natural resources and a finite atmosphere. With an introduction by environmentalist and writer Bill McKibben, "Over" compels us all to reconsider our basic assumptions about how we live, work and play, and reveals that while the challenges we face today are not insurmountable, the future depends on our collective vision, passion and commitment.
